  • Check Alfresco version in two easy steps

    Lately, I started working on Alfresco and the first thing I wanted to confirm is version. Well, I couldn’t find any script to check the running alfresco version and it took few minutes to actually find it. So here is the way two ways to check the alfresco version.

    Through Share or Alfresco Explorer Console

    • Login into either Share or Explorer Console
    • Move your mouse towards left top corner and click on alfresco logo

    alfresco-share-logo       alfresco-explorer-check-version

    • From Share, you should get a popup that reveals the alfresco version

    alfresco-share-version

    • From Explorer console, it will display the version in the main body

    alfresco-explorer-version

    Through Alfresco.log

    • Login into Alfresco server
    • Go to alfresco installed path
    • grep for “alfresco started” in alfresco.log
    [[email protected] alfresco-3.4.e]# grep -i "alfresco started" alfresco.log
     02:40:35,994 INFO  [org.alfresco.service.descriptor.DescriptorService] Alfresco started (Community): Current version 3.4.0 (e 3419) schema 4113 - Originally installed version 3.4.0 (e 3419) schema 4113
     [[email protected] alfresco-3.4.e]#

    It’s easy once you find the way. Isn’t it?
