How to check Cent OS version from SSH

(1/2) > >>

If you are not sure about the Cent OS, you can check it from SSH. On SSH console shot out following command:

cat /etc/*release*

It will give you the version details installed on your server.

The standard way to check your Linux version is using 'uname -a' command
Your version is CentOS specific and can give a wrong or no result at another Linux distribution.
