How to check Cent OS version from SSH

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.

The topic itself, how to check CentOS version and this command does not mean for any other distro. Also, your command is totally wrong. uname -a will give Kernel details not operating system information.

You can check the Centos version via command
cat /etc/redhat-release
In case of other OS, you can check the version via command.
cat /etc/os-release

Hi you can use the following commands:
lsb_release -d   ( Requires redhat-lsb package to be installed before execution.)
rpm -E %{rhel} 
rpm --eval %{centos_ver}
cat /etc/centos-release

hope this can help you.
