Check What Version of MediaWiki You Are Running

Updated: November 19, 2021

The version number of MediaWiki installed on your website is listed in several places:

  • On the Special:Version page (i.e, http://www.example.com/Special:Version), the version number is listed in the "Installed software" section: MediaWiki Version on Version Page
  • In the file /includes/DefaultSettings.php the version number is listed in the line that begins $wgVersion:
    /**
     * MediaWiki version number
     * @since 1.2
     */
    $wgVersion = '1.25.1';
    
  • In the source code of the website's pages the version number is listed in the following line:
    <meta name="generator" content="MediaWiki 1.25.1">

If you have an outdated MediaWiki installation in need of an update, we can handle that upgrade for you.
