How can I see the exact version of my WordPress?

There are few ways to see the version of your WordPress application:

  • WordPress Dashboard

Right after you access your WordPress administrative area, you will find your WordPress version in the At a Glance admin widget.

  • Through the version.php file

You can open the wp-includes/version.php file with your cPanel's File Manager and the WordPress version will be listed under the $wp_version line.

  • Using WP-CLI over SSH

SiteGround customers can use the WordPress command line interface (WP-CLI) that comes pre-installed on their hosting packages. Simply access your hosting account via SSH, navigate to the WordPress installation directory and execute this command:

wp core version

The output of the command will show the WordPress version.
