Hi all

I have been task with upgrading a mysql instance on a windows Server 2016.
The server has a copy of Mysql 5.7.

But I must now upgrade the Mysql 5.6 version to 5.7 but using the existing 5.6 instance.
In the end there will be two instances of 5.7 running.

How would can I go about doing this safely.

The 5.7 Installer does see 5.6 and therefore unable to upgrade using the installer.

I believe I will have to shutdown 5.6 and replace the Binary manually.

Does anyone have an idea on how to approach this?
