            A quick and easy way to determine what Version of Centos your using is...  Access the command line via the Terminal and type cat /etc/centos-release as follows:

            [root@localhost ~]# cat /etc/centos-release
            CentOS release 6.9 (Final)

            The same command works for RedHat:
            cat /etc/redhat-release

            To determine the Build/Release, simply type cat /proc/version as follows:

            cat /proc/version
