Can I upgrade directly from Confluence 5.0 to 5.6.3?

Can I upgrade directly from Confluence 5.0 to 5.6.3 or do I have to do the upgrade in steps?

We are using Confluence with SQL Server 2008.

Yes you can. https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Upgrading+Confluence

Still, it is a good idea to read the upgrade notes for the releases between your version and the latest:

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+5.6.3+Upgrade+Notes

 

I got this error message when trying to upgrade:

Confluence will not start up because the build number in the home directory [4104] doesn't match the build number in the database [3398].

Any tips?
