Detect matomo version number with php

I am looking for a way to find out the current version number of the installation in a separate PHP script (identical Documentroot). Any ideas?


There is an HTTP API, which returns the installed version:

You may need to add the auth token of a user with read access to at least one site.

I found the HTTP API - but im inside a docker container without curl or smth.
I saw there is a class calle /piwk/core/Version.php with a const named VERSION - how to use these class?


The following works for me:

require_once "core/Version.php";

echo Piwik\Version::VERSION;

hi lukas - thanks (i’ve tried this yesterday with an error) - maybe today is a better day.
