I am brand new to this forum so please excuse any ignorance on my part in my questions.  I am performing the upgrade from 2014 to 2015 and am very unsure about alot of it.  It appears to be a major task and do not want to mess it up for my company so I have a few questions to ask.  Any help is greatly appreciated. 


What gets upgraded first in the process?


In what order should you upgrade (meaning database, PDM Enterprise, Solidworks and clients)?


Best method to upgrade (media, download directory on server, "Check for Updates", or customer web site)?


Are there any critical parts to pay attention to or for during upgrade?


When do the clients get upgraded and best method to handle that portion?


Again, thank you to any and all for any tips or advice for performing the upgrade.
