I utilize Linux Mint. Current database is on Mint 17 with 188.8.131.52 using PHP 5. We want to move to a new server and have held off due to the complexity in the past. We are now going to Linux Mint 18.3 5.0.1 using PHP 7.
Any advice would be deeply appreciated. I have read the wiki and find it somewhat thin on direct instructions. Any help would be appreciated. Ideally I would like to take the backup file from 184.108.40.206 and upgrade it and put it into 5.0.1
