Upgrade Crystal Server 2013 SP2 to SP8

Headmasters asked
Last Modified: 2017-01-20
We have got a instance of Crystal Server 2013 SP2 Update 2 installed in our environment.

Has anyone got any information on how to upgrade to SP8 and what steps are required?

Do I need to do each SP or can I go from 2 to 8? Can I install the latest SP with latest update or each update?

Is there an order that I need to upgrade? i.e  Database, CMS Server, Apache Front end?

Same with the components. Is there an order with Server, Client tools, Objects Explorer?
