I need to either find a file in which the version is encoded or a way of polling it across the web so it reveals its version. The server is running at a host who will not provide me command line access, although I can browse the install location via FTP.
I have tried HEAD and do not get a version number reported.
If I try a missing page to get a 404 it is intercepted, and a stock page is returned which has no server information on it. I guess that points to the server being hardened.
Still no closer…
I put a PHP file up as suggested, but I can't browse to it and can't quite figure out the URL path that would load it. In any case I am getting plenty of access denied messages and the same stock 404 page. I am taking some comfort from knowing that the server is quite robustly protected.
