[ckan-dev] Upgrade strategy from 2.3 to 2.8?

I am going to attempt to get our 2.3 CKAN site up to the latest version, on a new server and was hoping folks could weigh in on my plan.  In addition to the CKAN upgrade, I will also be moving the site from a server running RHEL 6.9 to 7.5.

My thought:

1)      Dump the database on the old system; copy it to the new system and then restore.

2)      Checkout the new version of CKAN from github on the new server.

3)      Copy over all the Solr cores and then make any Solr schema changes needed

4)      Run paster db upgrade.

I guess my biggest question is if the paster db upgrade is cumulative, or if I somehow need to do each upgrade between 2.3 and 2.8 one at a time.

Any other gotchas people can think of?
