WPEngine MySQL Version

It’s easy enough to find the version of MySQL you’re using if you have command line access, but that’s not always the case.

If you do have shell access, it’s:

$ mysql -V

If the site in question is using WPEngine, though, you probably don’t have command line access. In addition, when I went hunting for the MySQL version in phpMyAdmin, I couldn’t find that anywhere, either. I just assumed it’d be displayed somewhere in the UI, but it wasn’t.

You can, however, use a query for this:

SELECT version();

Hope that helps.
