    This is what I'm doing and so far seems to be working well.

    OLD = amember 4 v. ..... am_
    NEW = amember 5 v. ....am5_

    Keep OLD and NEW-ly installed amember tables in ONE mysql directory on server (seems crazy but read on).

    Upload ONLY the OLD am_ tables for:
    am_user, and
    (You will need to change the prefex to am5_)

    Now copy and paste from OLD tables (in my case using phpmyadmin) into amember admin interface (after signing in).

    Otherwise, I get too many errors from uploading the OLD tables into the new amember 5 version with
    PHP 7.

    You will have to recreate your products and re-secure your content all over again... but again, do it from the amember front-end interface.

    Hope this helps someone.
