So I was following a guide for upgrading MediaWiki. I want to know how can I check my installed version.


Visit Special:Version, or fetch the equivalent API if you really want to use it from the terminal. E.g.

curl -s 'https://en.wikipedia.org/w/api.php?action=query&meta=siteinfo&format=json' | jq '.query.general.generator'
