All releases prior to SP1 have been offloaded to this Archive-Page here! If you need to check for previous versions and/or information, you will find it there.

Note:
Service Pack 1 will be mandatory requirement for installing any subsequent SharePoint 2013 cumulative updates as the new baseline!
The SharePoint Server 2013 Packs are containing the Foundation Packs and may need only the Server package to be installed!

The Build number shown in your central admin -> servers in farm’s site is the version that comes from the configuration database (table dbo.versions).
Please see here for more: Common question: why does the version number on the “Servers in Farm” page not change after installing October CU?

If you want to be sure that you have installed the server CU you also can check it in Central Admin -> Upgrade and Migration -> Check product and patch installation status. This will show you the versions installed.

For SP1:
In order to determine if SP1 is installed for Office 2013 or a related product, look for the program version in the list of installed programs in the Programs and Features control panel. If SP1 is installed, the version will be 15.0.4571.1502 or higher. Additionally, if you’ve installed the SP1 update for an MSI product, SP1 will be listed in Installed Updates in that same control panel.

You can also use this PowerShell script to display version info for installed SharePoint product and language packs

=> Service Pack 1 for SharePoint and Office 2013


Important !

  • If your farm has been on a patch level lower than July 2015 CU: Unlike other CUs – after installing the August 2015 CU you need to run the SharePoint 2013 Products Configuration Wizard on each machine in the farm.
    If you don’t run PSCONFIG after installing August 2015 CU (on a farm which had a lower patch level than July 2015 CU) crawl might no longer work – so ensure to schedule a maintenance window when installing this CU which includes PSCONFIG runs.
    See here for detail: http://blogs.technet.com/b/stefan_gossner/archive/2015/07/15/important-psconfig-is-mandatory-for-July-2015-cu-for-sharepoint-2013.aspx
  • When you install the cumulative update on a single-server SharePoint farm or on SharePoint servers that include Search Service Application topology roles, you should follow the steps that are mentioned on the following Microsoft website: http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=279911

Office Web Apps Server 2013:

NOTE!
As of  November, 24th, 2014 the Office Web Apps Serverwill be removed from the Microsoft Download Center.
At that time it will only be available for download under Volume Licensing agreements.
For more information please visit the site Volume Licensing Service Center.

To see which version of the OWA (also called the “Web Access Components” or “WAC”) use the following PowerShell:
PS > (Invoke-WebRequest http://owa.contoso.com/m/met/participant.svc/jsonAnonymous/BroadcastPing).Headers[“X-OfficeVersion”]

    Hi,
    There is no Uber Pack since September’15 ?
    My SP farm is on last September’15 update and I wait for new Uber to update it.

    Thx for your job !

    1. Steve [MSFT] says:

      Hello Chris,

      pretty much anyone except two since September 2015 are UBER Packages, so feel free to download any one of the most recent ones.
      cheers, Steve

      1. Chris says:

        Hello Steve,

        Thanks for your response.
        Today when I searched for OWA CU, I looked that : https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/stefan_gossner/2016/05/11/may-2016-cu-for-sharepoint-2013-product-family-is-available-for-download/
        According to Stefan Goßner, it seems that May 2016 CU is an Uber Pack.

      2. Chris says:

        Oups, sorry I read too fast your reply. “anyone except two […] are UBER Packages” Thanks ! :)

  2. Chris says:

    Hi,
    Our SP 2013 environment is only at SP1 (15.0.4569.1509). To get it fully updated would you recommend do it incrementally or would it be ok to go straight to one of the more recent CU’s?

    1. Steve [MSFT] says:

      Hi Chris,

      you can go straight ahead to one of the most recent CU’s on top of SP1 – no need to do it incrementally.
      There are some special cases but very rare where a certain order must be considered not to break the update chain but not since SP1, so you#re good to go.

      greetz, Steve
