How to Find Out What Axigen Version Is Running on Your System

For debugging purposes it is necessary that you inform the support team of the exact Axigen version you have running.


There are two methods for determining the Axigen version currently running:

  1. By using the Axigen binary
    This is located in the following path, based on the operating system used:
    • On Linux platforms — /opt/axigen/bin/axigen
      By default, the Axigen binary is named axigen. However, to make sure that this is the binary currently running, you can use the command:
      ps ax | grep axigen This will return an output similar to:
      9372 pts/8     R+     0:00 grep --colour=auto axigen
      21377 ?        Ss     0:00 /opt/axigen/bin/axigen --max-respawns 20
      21378 ?        Sl     1:23 /opt/axigen/bin/axigen --max-respawns 20
      27295 ?        Ssl    0:01 /opt/axigen/bin/axidkd
      27306 ?        Ssl    0:01 /opt/axigen/bin/axidksd
      27317 ?        Ssl    0:01 /opt/axigen/bin/aximilter
      27329 ?        Ss     0:28 /opt/axigen/bin/spamd -d
      As you can see, the above lines confirm that the running Axigen binary is /opt/axigen/bin/axigen with the default parameters --max-respawns 20

      After determining the running binary location for Axigen, you can make use of the -v or --version arguments for printing the version currently installed:
      # /opt/axigen/bin/axigen --version
      Axigen server version: 7.0.0 (Linux/i686)
    • On Windows platforms — C:\Program Files\Axigen Mail Server\bin\axigen.exe
      Right-click on it and select Properties. Go to the Version tab and in the File Version field you will find the detailed binary version of your Axigen server.

  2. By using the CLI interface
    • Login via CLI (the default IP:port for the CLI listener is
      telnet 7000
    • In the login context, use the GET VERSION command, which will result in:
      get version
      7.0.0 (Linux/i686)|Linux|i686
