You can pass the -v or -V option to display nginx web server version. The syntax is:

nginx -v

Sample outputs:

nginx version: nginx/1.2.3

The -V option shows nginx version, compiler version and configure parameters.

nginx -V

Sample outputs:

nginx version: nginx/1.2.3
built by gcc 4.4.6 20120305 (Red Hat 4.4.6-4) (GCC)
