Move/Duplicate 5.6 site before update

I have been tasked with updating 5.6 sites to 5.7 ... 5.8.4. All of my C5 experience is in C5.7+. :-(

To complicate things, the current site has been mangled into running on nginx with unknown mods and way too many simlinks. What has worked for me on C5.7+ sites moved from this same mud-pit, has been to create a clean install of C5, move the customizations over and then the DB. POOF- clean version. On C5.7 that means moving application/blocks, application/themes and packages folders.

Where are all the customizations in C5.6?

The customization should be in the root blocks/packages/etc folders.
