Upgrade Crystal Server 2013 SP2 to SP8

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?

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I can't find the Crystal Server service packs to download or review the documentation.

Generally the service pack will include a document that indicates if it is a full version or just an update.

The install should do all the updating and in the correct order.
