apache upgrade 1.3 -> 2 - FreeBSD

Is it easy (or possible even) to upgrade apache 1.3 to 2 with ports. I'm running apache-1.3.33_1 with php5 and mysql 4 on FreeBSD 5.3 machine and now I'd like to go to apache2. -- kpn IRCnet...

    curious markings: 

    Of course it's possible. It's even easy if you read the doentation
    and understand what's changed between 1.x and 2.x. I remember reading
    something about PHP not being thread-safe, however, and since that may
    be one of the reasons for your wanting to upgrade (worker saves one of
    my machines about 25 MB of core for equivalent functionality), you may
    want to rethink it.

    Your config will largely stay the same, but its not as much as an upgrade as it
    is a reinstall...IMHO even bsd has you enable different options in rc.conf to
    enable apache2.

    A great doent to understand the differences.

    On the other point, PHP is thread safe, it is the libraries which you choose to
    compile into PHP that may not be thread safe. Take a look at all the third party
    libraries you'll be compiling in, look at the project sites and determine if
    they are, or are not, thread safe. If you're unsure and want to upgrade to
    Apache2 anyway...then just compile using prefork MPM, this will leave much of
    the internals working the same as 1.3, but still give you built in SSL and some
    other Apache2 features, without the work.

    PHP will also need to be recompiled using WITH_APACHE2 if you're using ports or
    --with-apxs2=/path/to/apache/bin/apxs if compiling by hand.
