MySQLMySQLi Database

With the help of ‘mysqladmin’ program we would be able to know about the version of our MySQL server. To get the version we should have to write the following command on command line −

C:\mysql\bin>mysqladmin -u root version
mysqladmin Ver 8.42 Distrib 5.7.20, for Win64 on x86_64
