THE WAY I DID IT FOR THE FIRST TIME WAS LIKE THIS:

1) Took an image of the hard disk of the server;  Some call this cloning 
of the HD
2) I then copied the configuration file on to a flash drive;
3) I then installed the latest version of apache in the normal way;
4) I re-copied the configuration file back to the server from the flash 
drive;
5) rebooted the server;
6) Everything was OK

My server is pretty small and the traffic is almost negligible. About 
2500 people in a day.

Now the purpose of cloning the drive to to ensure that should anything 
goes wrong, you can always undo your work by putting back the old server 
back using the image files.  You do need to have either Norton Ghost or 
Acronis software to do this.

Hope this helps.
