    Another way to Retrieve MySQL Server version by using $wpdb:

    global $wpdb;
    $db_version_dump = $wpdb->get_var( 'SELECT VERSION() AS version from DUAL' );
    if ( preg_match( '/\d+(?:\.\d+)+/', $db_version_dump, $matches ) ) {
        echo $matches[0]; //returning the first match of Database Version
