Assuming you kept the source tree for 1.3.27, go into that directory and
find the file named config.nice (or it may be config.status; I can never
keep them straight).  Copy that file to the root of the 1.3.28
distribution, then type
make install

After that, you should be able to restart apache and have the new version
working with no other changes.  The installation will not overwrite your
documents, config files, or third-party modules, and the module api is
compatible, so all third-party modules should continue to work.

If you don't have the 1.3.27 source distribution, you'll need to recreate
the same ./configure command line that you used and then repeat the above
