Try this guide: click me. Hope it helps.

and ALWAYS ALWAYS test this out on a developer machine if you are going to use this on a production db server.

(like; clone your whole db server into another box or VM and then do an upgrade there first to check if the tables and data will not be affected by any unknown upgrading errors)

As chickenjoy said, try on developer machine and make full checks. I had some strange situations after upgrade with mysql, some syntax didn't work anymore and needed to be changed too, in the urgence. Hopefully, it was not on a critical system, and functions used were for reporting. So, nothing really grave. And we did some checks before update. Once again make FULL checks.
