    which version of redhat is my server running?


    This has got to be a stupid question but I can't find an answer anywhere...

    I am running a few sites on a shared server running some version of RH to which I have SSH access. I want to install Subversion in my home directory but I don't know which version of Redhat is running?

    Is there a command line way to find this out?

    another way of doing so
    log in and type

    cat /proc/version
    (if you are curious about other stuff you can use these too)
    cat /proc/cpuinfo
    cat /proc/meminfo

    Hi there,
    I also faced the same problem
    there is another way,
    as far as redhat is file in /etc
    you can use the following command to view the same:

    cat /etc/redhat-release
