    How do I check versions in UNIX???

    I'm installing the latest release of Apache for the company I work for and I have no idea what version of Apache we are running now? In fact, I don't know how to check versions in UNIX on any installed package on the server.

    There has to be an easy to do this. I fagely remember something about a 'proc' folder that contained this infomation. Someone please help. Thanks in advance.

    each piece of s/w is different.

    most take a -v kind of option.....

    [localhost:~] howardm% httpd -version
    Server version: Apache/1.3.26 (Darwin)
    Server built: 06/24/02 16:41:08

    Talking THANKS!

    Duh! I remember this now. Thanks a bunch. So I guess there isn't just one program or script that lets you check versions of any sw package installed.

    uname -a will give you the version of Unix you are running.

    for apache version information, type:
    httpd -v
    it will also tell you when the server was built (first initialized).

    Some more:

    What OS version? ('sw_vers')
    What version of make? ('make -v')
    What Fink version? ('fink --version')
    What version of the dev tools? ('cc -v')


    Cheers...
