How to find out the Linux distro release and the version number of your server?

To check the version date of your OS (Linux distros):

uname -v

To find out the release:

uname -r

To display and show the complete kernel signature of your hosting server:

uname -a

Something like this will output similar information concerning your Linux kernel:

cat /proc/version

If you haven’t had the uname utility installed, you can get the kernel release version by:

cat /proc/sys/kernel/osrelease
