I am currently developing locally using MAMP. I originally installed Magento 2.1.4 from a software archive (zip). I’d like to upgrade to 2.1.6. Can I just do a fresh install from the latest zip archive and use the 2.1.4 database? I can’t seem to find any documentation for this method with Magento 2 but I have seen it mentioned with Magento 1.
I assumed it would be fine as long as I merged the old media folder, the theme and the extensions into the new file structure. I’d like to know whether I’m doing this in an acceptable way and whether it could cause problems in the future.
I’d be grateful if someone knows the correct steps to achieve this.
