The answer to this question is *always* "YES". Always back up your
configuratin files before making major changes. That is not just
specific to Apache, but a general rule you should learn to live by.

Now, the specific question - most times when you upgrade, your
configuration files are preserved. I don't know what this specific rpm
does. Assuming, however, that you are upgrading from 1.3.something to
2.0.something, that could change things, as there are a number of things
that you will want to change in your config when doing that upgrade.

There is a program that you can dowload from which will
assist you in converting your 1.3 configuration file to a 2.0
configuration file.
