I have 3 sites using the same host. I have updated them from 7.89 to 7.91 however only one site shows as using 7.91. I have hunted my host files for a system.info with 7.89 without any luck.

Where do I find which system.info files are being used by my sites?

The Drupal 7 Core version is in includes/bootstrap.inc on line 10, not in a .info file. Example:

define('VERSION', '7.91');

  • See my comment below. That is the system.info that my sites should be using (I think).

The system.info file is simply the file containing information for the System module. As such, there should not be more than a system.info file in a Drupal site, except in the case you copied the Drupal core files more than once.

The system.info file doesn't contain any release value. It just contains a reference to a constant defined in another file.

name = System
description = Handles general site configuration for administrators.
package = Core
version = VERSION
core = 7.x
files[] = system.archiver.inc
files[] = system.mail.inc
files[] = system.queue.inc
files[] = system.tar.inc
files[] = system.updater.inc
files[] = system.test
required = TRUE
configure = admin/config/system

VERSION is defined in the includes/bootstrap.inc file. If that file has been updated, it's probable the Drupal core release isn't reported correctly.

  • This is VERSION in bootstrap.inc /** * The current system version. */ define('VERSION', '7.91');
