Version difference in Site Settings and Central administration

Hi All,

One day somebody asked me, what is the version number of your SharePoint? And I did not have answer because I was not too sure where to look for. However it came in my mind that we can see version number on site settings page. Hence I opened my site settings page and gave answer to a person who asked me last evening.

So what is the big deal here in version number? Nothing new, you just have the version number of your SharePoint on site settings page.

Wait a minute. Have you ever observed version number as part of Farm Information in central administration. See below image for it.

In my machine, version number under site settings and version number under farm information are same. However, if you see a different version number in any of them, then there could be some reason for this. May be following reason is responsible for this version difference.

1) You may have applied some service packs related to MOSS / WSS 3.0 and you forgot to run SharePoint technology and configuration wizard. You must complete that wizard after applying service pack and that too successfully.

So bottom line is whenever you apply any service pack or when ever SharePoint asks you to run the wizard, just run it successfully and you should have same version number under both above mentioned screen.
