I have a Civi 4.4.4 install on a Drupal 7.37 and I want to upgrade both: the Drupal to 7.59 (which I think is the latest in D7?) and Civi to the latest 5.6.0 if possible. I am totally new to both of these products, but I've upgraded Wordpress before, if that experience will help me at all :P
I just saw a very recently updated post in this forum in which some people describe the process of making long-distance upgrades, going back and forth between upgrading Civi and upgrading Drupal to intermediate versions, alternating, and it sounds like it would be pure hell.
My question here is: should I do Drupal first, or Civi first? I realized that I'd better ask because whatever my intuition is might be wrong. I'm really hoping there will only be one upgrade each, since the "distance" is not that far off. Help is much appreciated.
