Hi Benny,

There a couple of schools of thought here - sometimes upgrades are lower risk/easier if they are smaller (and thus more frequent). So you could consider a small upgrade to move to MySQL 5.5+InnoDB, then 5.6, then 5.7 (officially only an upgrade from 5.6 -> 5.7 is supported).

On a practical level, it's easier to upgrade to MySQL 5.7 by using replication. You can upgrade a slave first, convert the tables to InnoDB, and then once you've confirmed everything is working - switch to making that your primary server.

Hope this helps.
