Hi, I am currently using 2.2.7 CE and plan to upgrade via composer/CLI. Is possible to upgrade to the latest version? Is there a way to check the highest version I can upgrade to for the community edition?
Also do I need to upgrade my system before or after I start the magento upgrade? I can see here https://devdocs.magento.com/guides/v2.4/install-gde/system-requirements.html the system requirements are different from what I have currently on my server.
