I recently upgraded version 2.2.29 to 2.4.16 on Windows and the 
procedure was pretty simple.  In my case htdocs was completely separate 
from the core so the upgrade was just as normal as you would install a 
fresh server.

In my case, I first made the list of which modules are to be loaded; I 
also made a print out of the old config file just in case I get the 
folders wrong.  After this you can go ahead and the configuration you 
may need to do are as follows:

ServerName & port number
Config for server side includes
Config for php and perl  - for php to decide whether to run as fastCGI 
or as a module

That is all I had to do;  The php was upgraded before apache was so the 
security features were already in place.

I guess in Linux environment it must be different but you get the idea.  
Be organized and document everything first before starting anything.

Good luck.
