As I look for hosting for my website, I have been asked if I want ColdFusion 11 or ColdFusion 2016. The ColdFusion project I have was done while I was in school in the fall of 2016 and I am not sure which version it was done in. Is there any way to tell? I no longer have access to the school server.
It probably won't matter, as they're both very similar in functionality. So I'd recommend going with 2016 just to be on a later version. You can download both versions and see whether it works any differently with one or the other, but that's probably more work than you want to spend on this.

CF is backwards compatible so go with CF2016 or CF2018 if available for any new projects.
