How do I know what version of Red5 is running on my server?
You want to find out what version of Red5 is running on your server?
There are a few ways:
1) Look at the Red5 welcome page on port 5080.
To see the welcome page just go to http://yourred5server.com:5080 in your web browser. It’s not the most accurate but it’s the fastest and you don’t need access to the Red5 installation. Here are the welcome screens for different versions.

2) Look in docs/changelog.txt
Look in the Red5 installation folder/docs/changelog.txt . You will immediately see the Red5 version there:
3) Pay attention to the Red5 startup log
During startup, Red5 will show the Red5 version, here is where to look when starting Red5 standalone on Windows:
4) Look in log/red5_service.log
When starting Red5 as a service on Windows it will create a new log file: Red5 installation folder/log/red5_service.log . In it you will find the Red5 startup log mentioned above and thus the Red5 version.
