Planning to Upgrade Jira from 5.2.9 to 6.3.

Please provide me steps for the upgrade. Also please let me know if this would affect my current JIRA setup? What would be the hardware requirements which is relatively new for the new version of JIRA 6.3

Can I upgrade directly to 6.3? Are there any difficulties or any hindrances which may not be supported on the newer version? We only use the greenhopper /Structure plugin  as of now. I see Greenhopper has changed to JIRA Agile. Any other difficulties to be faced?
