Hello there,

Wonder if you can help. I have taken over supporting a Silverstripe site for a client, but the previous Site Developer has delibiratly removed any reference to the Silverstripe version from the backend admin panel. Can anyone else point me to where i might find the version that is being used?

Many Thanks

If it's 2.4
You'll see two folders called sapphire & cms in the main site directory.

If it's 3+ you'll see framework & cms

Inside sapphire or framework dir there should be a file called silverstripe_version open that up to see which version you're running (if it's still there)

Thanks Bambii7,

I have Sapphire and CMS in the root so looks like its 2.4?. I did look before at the Sapphire\silverstripe_version file and the only thing in it was $URL$
I appreciate your quick reply though.

Thanks very much.

Right, yep I'd say that safe to assume 2.4, the sapphire folder is pre 3.x

Looks like the $url$ is when they moved away from svn to git...
