To check the version of Joomla that you are using, follow these steps:

  1. Log in to your Joomla website as an administrator.
  2. In the top menu, hover over the "Help" menu and click on "System Information".
  3. On the System Information page, look for the "Joomla! Version" field. This will display the version number of Joomla that you are using.


Alternatively, you can also check the version of Joomla by looking at the generator meta tag in the HTML source code of your website. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Open your website in a web browser and right-click on the page.
  2. Select "View Page Source" or "View Source" from the context menu.
  3. In the source code, look for a line that begins with <meta name="generator" content="Joomla. The version number of Joomla will be displayed after the word "Joomla".


Note: If you do not have access to the administrator dashboard or the HTML source code of your website, you can also check the version of Joomla by looking at the CHANGELOG.php file located in the root directory of your Joomla installation. The version number will be displayed at the top of the file.

There are a few methods to check the Joomla version:

  1. Backend Admin Panel: Log in to the Joomla backend administrator panel using your administrator credentials. The Joomla version is usually displayed at the bottom right corner of the screen.
  2. Joomla Version.php file: Connect to your Joomla website using FTP or File Manager in your hosting control panel. Navigate to the root folder of your Joomla installation (/public_html or /www). Look for a file called "version.php" in the includes folder. Open the version.php file using a text editor and check for the value of the variable "$RELEASE".
  3. Extension Manager: Log in to the Joomla backend administrator panel and go to Extensions -> Manage -> Manage. Look for the Joomla core extension called "Joomla! Update" or "Joomla! Update Notification". The version number should be displayed in the extension list.
  4. Database Check: Access your Joomla website's database using a tool like phpMyAdmin. Open the #schemas table (replace # with your Joomla database prefix) and look for the row with the extension name "com_something". The "version_id" column will display the Joomla version number.


It is recommended to use multiple methods to verify the Joomla version for accuracy.
