I am a little surprised that they didn't recommend updating to 2.2.25 (the
latest in the 2.2.x branch) or move up to 2.4.x branch.  In any case.....

What OS are you using?

I don't have the changes/issues from 2.2.9  through 2.2.15 in my head....If
you read the release notes for those versions, they should outline what
changed and what may need to be changed on your system.

My experience is that doing just about any Apache upgrade usually breaks
something.  They way I do it is to read the release notes and make sure I
understand the potential side effects of the update and  then look into
solutions to those potential problems so that if I do have a side effect, I
have some chance of resolving it.  I am not doing the upgrades on a
production system so I don't have the speed urgency.

If it is a production system, can you clone it, try the upgrade, see if it
works, and then switch over to the upgraded system??
