What steps should I go through to ensure a smooth upgrade from Apache httpd 1.1.1 to 1.2.6?  I have downloaded the latest distribution from Apache, but I'm not sure what I have to do.  ie, httpd is run as a separate user (to minimize hack-ins), so what should I be aware of?  Also, we're using VirtualHost directives(?) to get multiple domain names with one IP.

Build the new version. Create a new directory and copy all your old config files and change the running port to 8000. Start the new httpd using those config to see if there is any errors. If there's no errors, simply replace your old httpd binary with the new one you've build. If there is some errors, check the logs file and make appropriate changes to the config files and test it again. By doing this, you won't affect the current production enviroment.

All the files under the conf dir, access.conf, httpd.conf, srm.conf.
You could copy all those file into a new dir like "/new/web/conf"
then change your httpd.conf to use port 8000 or any other ports.
Just install the new server and follow the instructions in the
man pages.
