You should be able to do a full "make" without deinstalling the old
Apache. If make words, then it should only take a minute to do a "make
deinstall reinstall." Of course, this doesn't account for time tweaking
the conf files and debugging. This is why you really need a development
machine that is essentially a mirror of the critical app server so you
can do test runs and such. Or a 2nd (or 3rd) app server for redundancy
if this server is so important. In any case, you *will* at some point
have to down your web server to do the upgrade. That is unavoidable.
