where do I find version number?

Post by Microbe » Sat 11. Oct 2008, 06:06

Hey there,

Want to upgrade to V1.3.3 but I can't spot the current version number anywhere.

Obviously it is old because header is

(c) 2002-2005 Oliver Georgi (oliver@phpwcms.de) // All rights reserved.

But where is version number?

Thanks in advance

Hi,

have a look into the file /changelog.txt. Normally there you will find the last version no.

The latest actual build you will find at this place: http://jgbm.de/checkout.phtml.

Thanks Knut,

But I am working with an old install that I had nothing to do with. Changelog.txt isn't there so I need to try to discover the version from within the software itself.

Any ideas?

This is actually a good point that the version number should be included somewhere in the code.

microbe,

normaly, when you log in to your backend you can see some information at the bottom:
phpwcms Versionsinformation
Maybe this is in german, but you maybe see two version numbers with date. the first one is the latest (official, not SVN) version, the second is the version you are using.

I don´t know if this version check is included in older releases < 1.2.8, but please have a look.

If you can´t see any version information, please have also a look inside config.inc.php:

Code: Select all

$phpwcms['version_check']     = 1; // checks for current release of phpwcms online 
...

Thanks for all the help.

At the bottom of backend I have " phpwcms © 2003—2005 Oliver Georgi. Licensed under GPL. Extensions are copyright of their respective owners."

No version number.

I can only assume this means a really old version.

I added "$phpwcms['version_check'] = 1;" to the config file and that had no effect...or at least none I can see...doesn't advise I am using an older version.

version number:

Code: Select all

$phpwcms["release"] = '1.3.9';
$phpwcms["release_date"] = '2008/06/18';
in /include/inc_lib/default.inc.php

In older versions up to v1.2.6 e.g.:

Code: Select all

$phpwcms["version"] = '1.2.5-DEV';
in /include/inc_lib/default.inc.php

The main reason is that we just can't get the newsletter to work. I dont maintain the site but the person who does struggles with the back end finding it not very intuitive.

After evaluating a number of CMSs, based on both the back and front ends we have decided to move to CMS Made Simple
