What is the upgrade path from Windows 7 to Windows Server 2012?

I have a client who is running windows 7 as a server and has run out of inbound connections of 20.

I can't find a solution or an answer to whether I can simply upgrade windows 7 to windows server 2012?

or W7 > W8.1 > WSE2012 ?

Would anybody know?

Thank you in advance

Welcome to the forum.

There has never been an upgrade path from a client to a server version of Windows. You must do a clean install of the server OS.
