I have Windows 2000 Apache 2.0.47 mod_ssl/2.0.47 OpenSSL/0.9.7b PHP/4.3.1 installed
and want to upgrade to 2.0.55.
When I click on the msi file I am told to delete the existing version. If I
uninstall, what is deleted? I would want to keep the config file and scripts
and such. Why does it not overlay the current version and make any necessary
adjustments? I want to upgrade but I don't want to destroy anything in the
process, even if I have a backup. (Obviously, this is my first Apache
Also - what about SSL ? will it still work after the upgrade. Thx in advance!

The 2.0.55 .msi from ASF does not contain SSL.

When upgrading, best is to save your apache/conf folder and after the upgrade replace it.

save the htdocs folder, all other folders where your docuemnts are (e.g. phpmyadmin). safe your certificates and the httpd.conf (may other confg files). After deleting the old version and installing the new one replace all files with the backups (htdocs, config .etc)
The Apache will run as before and SSL will works as well.

Second method install the new version of Apache in another folder (don't replace the old one) stop the old apache and replace all *.exe and *.dll and *.so with the new ones.
