MySQL version?
Posted on 27 January 2004 11:14 PM
Question:

How can I check the version of MySQL running the database for my site?

Answer:

For a quick answer, visit the Server Info section of your CNC.

You can also quickly determine the version using the 'version' command once logged in to the server. This displays the MySQL version, your connection ID, and other useful information.

To do this, SSH to your account and then type the following:

$ mysqladmin -uxdom -p -hmysql.example.com version

Note: Replace the xdom with your actual xdom and example.com with your actual domain name. The "$" signifies the shell prompt.
