I think when I went from 5 to 6 I set up 6 in VirtualBox to sync all the data and e-mails out then wiped the old server and did a fresh install of 6 and sync'd all the data back. For 6 to 7 I set up an old PC temporarily and installed 7 on it, dis a 6.x backup -> 7.x config restore and sync'd the data across. Then I moved the disk from there back into the production box. It leaves a few issues with interfaces which change between boxes but was not too difficult to sort.
