Find Confluence version from the installation directory

There are several Confluence installation folders on my machine. I know that 5.8.5 is running. How can I guess which folder it is?

In other words, is there any file in the installation directory which tells me which version of Confluence that is?

Hi Adrien,

Simply go to your Confluence Administrator Menu and search for the System Information menu Item on the left.

Once that page is located you see the home folder and the installation folder of the currently running Confluence instance (search for Confluence Home and catalina.home )

 

Cheers,

Peter

I have to admit this is a correct answer. Even though I hoped you'd tell me something like "cat conf/confluence-version.properties" would return 5.8.5 ;)

There's build number in confluence.cfg.xml -- https://confluence.atlassian.com/x/MAh2Fg

In the Confluence folder (e.g. /opt/atlassian/confluence) README.txt has version info.

Thanks. This is what I was looking for. Now I can retrieve the current version using PowerShell. 

$altVersion = ""
$altVersion = @( Select-String -path "\\[server]\C$\Program Files\Atlassian\confluence\README.txt" -pattern "README" -allmatches –simplematch | Select-Object line )
$altVersion[0].Line.Replace('README','')
