Ubuntu/Debian — Show Certbot Version

Certbot is part of the Let’s Encrypt family. You’re issuing your Let’s Encrypt SSL certificates through certbot. Certbot is software that you should keep track of during system maintenance.

This tutorial shows you how to display the Certbot version number.

Ubuntu/Debian Series Overview

  1. Show Certbot Version

Show Certbot Version on Ubuntu/Debian

Showing Certbot’s version number is helpful when debugging issues or checking the availability of new features. The good thing: Certbot’s CLI comes with a --version flag to display the version number:

certbot --version  
// 0.31.0

Please notice: the -v flag as a shortcut for --version didn’t work with our installed Certbot version, only --version did.

That’s it!
