I know nothing about SLES, but any decent apache install will have a
way to gracefully restart apache, which will cause apache to reread
the config without losing any existing or pending connections.  Try
reading through rcapache2 to see what options it provides, and in the
worst case, send a USR1 signal to the root-owned process.
