Upgrade Crystal Server 2013 SP2 to SP8

Headmasters used Ask the Experts™
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 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.
