regarding a version number: 
in my opinion a number in a conf-File AND in a DB-Table 
could be useful, so checks like 'does this installation
of mapbender-files match the database' are possible.

But i think mapbender.conf is not the right place for
a version number, because
* it will be created by a setup-script and before it
  is created we have no version number => we have to store
  it in another place.
* when updating an installation the user copies all mapbender files
  (php, js) but not the conf-files, these are changed manually

Perhaps a version.txt just containing the version number?
