Apache, PHP: Function to Get and Return PHP Version Number and Apache Version

To get the PHP version as well as the Apache version of the current host build, you will need the PHP function apache_get_version():

$ver = apache_get_version();

Sample output:

Apache/2.2.6 (Win32) PHP/5.2.5

Which returns a string containing the Apache version number (2.2.6) as well as that of PHP (5.2.5).

You can also get the PHP version by:
