Which shiny server am I using?


Sorry for the stupid question:

I was running a shiny server open source on a linux server (Ubuntu 16.04.xxx).
Today, I just installed the trial shiny server PRO on top of it.

Everything seems to work, but how can I be sure my app is using the PRO server and not the open source one? (I suppose the server has been upgraded and the open source version does not exist anymore, but I would like to be sure)



This is not a stupid question at all. You would be surprised how many times we have people (or employees :sweat_smile:) download the open source or pro version unintentionally and be confused by behavior as a result!

In any case, this command should get you sorted:

$ /opt/shiny-server/bin/shiny-server --version
Shiny Server (Commercial) v1.5.1.760
Node.js v6.9.1

If it has "Commercial" (or the similar command for RStudio Server says "Professional"), that means you should be good to go!! As you said, in this case, the server has been upgraded, and the open source version does not exist anymore :slight_smile:

If you don't see "Commercial" or "Professional," then you are probably using the open source version :grimacing:

Let us know if that helps or if you have any further questions!!


Thank you very much Cole.

It says: Shiny Server Pro v1.5.11.994
So, I guess I am good to go :wink:

Have a nice day!
