I have a website on Magento 220.127.116.11 on one Linux server with PHP 5.6 and I need to upgrade it to the latest version and install it on another Linux server with PHP 7.2. So, I'm very confused about my next steps. I know that I can't upgrade PHP to the latest version on the first server as Magento 1.9 doesn't support that.
So, do I need to upgrade it first to Magento 2.0 (I've read somewhere that it does support 5.6) or I can't upgrade it straight to the latest version? I also have some confusion about transferring the data. Do I need to create a separate copy of the original database or I can just repoint it? I appreciate any help
