Update 7.0 to 7.1

I recently got a customer who has a website running on Sitecore 7.0 SP1 (140408) They want to update to 7.2 Update-6 (160123)

I am not very familiar with Sitecore. But at the moment I am one-eye in a company with just blind people. So this task has fallen to (king) me.

I found that I have to install 7.1 Initial Release (130926) and 7.2 Initial Release (140228) first. Am I getting that right?


I noted that the sdn website that the previous developer pointed me to when transferring the project about a year ago is no longer there. The downloads have been moved to archives on dev.sitecore.net. (https://dev.sitecore.net/Downloads/Sitecore_Experience_Platform/7_0/Sitecore_Experience_Platform_7_and_below.aspx)

Except...there are some files I can't seem to find there.


The installation notes for 7.1 IR (https://doc.sitecore.com/SdnArchive/Products/Sitecore%20V5/Sitecore%20CMS%207/Update/7_1_rev_130926.html) step 5 tells me to install Update Installation Wizard 1.0.0 rev. 130926.zip. That file I can't seem to find in the archive for 7.0 and 7.1. Am I overlooking it? If not, where do I get it? Or is it not important?


Just to see if I could at least do something I continued without doing step 5. It seems to work up to step 11. That step never ends.

Or rather, it does when the login expires. Gives me a nasty error.

May this have anything to do with skipping step 5?


How do I proceed and get my customer the wanted updates?
