To check the version of PrestaShop installed on your website by looking at the files, you can follow these steps:
- Connect to your website using an FTP client or file manager provided by your hosting provider.
- Navigate to the root directory of your PrestaShop installation. This is typically the directory where you can see files like index.php, config/settings.inc.php, and admin/ folder.
- Look for a file named VERSION or VERSION.txt. This file should be located in the root directory of your PrestaShop installation.
- Open the file and look for the version number. The version number is usually written as a string of numbers separated by periods (e.g., 126.96.36.199).
If you can’t find the VERSION file, you can also check the version number by looking at the contents of the file config/settings.inc.php. Look for a line that starts with define(‘PS_VERSION‘, and the version number will be listed after the equals sign. For example, define(‘PS_VERSION‘, ‘188.8.131.52’);.
Alternatively, you can log in to the back office of your PrestaShop website, and the version number will be displayed on the dashboard page. To access the back office, add “/admin” to the end of your website’s URL (e.g., www.yourwebsite.com/admin).
