I know about the phpinfo() way but is there any other way? I'm using CentOS and I can't find the httpd executable to run httpd -v.

Either rpm -q httpd or /usr/sbin/httpd -v should work.

Thanks! I kept looking in /sbin instead of /usr/sbin but both of those worked! Hopefully Google will index this answer instead of the garbage that is out there. –  tooshel Feb 2 '11 at 16:15
@tooshel: You could have tried locate. "locate bin/httpd". Assuming it's installed, not sure it's standard on CentOS. –  Jürgen A. Erhard Feb 2 '11 at 16:39
Yeah, we do have locate . . . I found out because another colleague was convinced I didn't move something because the "locate" index was not updated. I still always forget it's there! Thanks! –  tooshel Feb 4 '11 at 16:25
