How to check Django version

I have to use Python and Django for our application. So, I have two versions of Python, 2.6 and 2.7. Now I have installed Django. I could run the sample application for testing Django successfully. But how do I check whether Django uses the 2.6 or 2.7 version and what version of modules Django uses?


  • Django 1.5 supports Python 2.6.5 and later.

    If you're under Linux and want to check the Python version you're using, run python -V from the command line.

    If you want to check the Django version, open a Python console and type

    >>> import django
    >>> django.VERSION
    (2, 0, 0, 'final', 0)
