    The certificate server upgrade should be straightforward. As long as the servername doesn't change, it will work after the upgrade and all certificates issued will still be valid.

    To renew the www certificate (assuming it was issued by your own private CA):
    -In Administrative Tools-> Internet Information Services, right-click the Default Website and select Properties.
    -On the Directory Security tab, click "Server Certificate", and select to "Renew the current certificate".
    -If renewal doesn't work, just remove the existing certificate and then run the wizard again to request a new certificate.
