Display PostgreSQL/PgSQL version

22 Jul

Display the PostgreSQL version number (and other information like compiler version used to build PgSQL) issue the following SQL statement from within psql:

SELECT version();

To quickly determine just the PostgreSQL version number, run this command from the OS command line:

psql –version

root@nikko[~]# psql –version
psql (PostgreSQL) 8.1.23
contains support for command-line editing
