This depends greatly on where your current distribution of HTTPD is from.
Did you build it yourself or did you download binaries from a website and
if so, which site?

How is HTTPD set up on your current system? Does it run as a service? What
is the path to the executables and libraries?
Are you using any non-standard modules?

You should obtain the new version from the same place you obtained the old
version from.
I would make a backup copy of the entire HTTPD directory and then just
overwrite all the files except the configuration with the new files you

That is probably as detailed as you can get without more information about
your current environment.
