I installed Drupal a couple of years ago, and really don't remember what version it was. So I never know where to look in the upgrade instructions. What's the first thing to do to find out?

Take a look at your CHANGELOG.txt file.

There really should be a much (MUCH) easier way to do it than this. It should be on the admin page somewhere.

see also http://drupal.org/project/systeminfo; shows info right from w/in Drupal admin and gives nice format like:

Version 4.7.0
Sites directory default
Database prefix
Web Server
Type Apache
Version 1.3.37
PHP Interface CGI
Version 4.4.4

My point is that this should not be a non-core module.

Yes, this information in one place could be handy for technical assistance. Would save time. Although it would be eyed suspiciously during every cruft purge in core.

It seems like Drupal 5 has that:

"If it's available, go to administer >> logs >> status report. This will list your version number if you have Drupal 5.0 and above."
