Using portupgrade - FreeBSD

What are some considerations to make before upgrading the ports? Does upgrading them overwrite the existing config files? I've got a number of ports that aren't up-to-date, but this is running on a server, so I don't want to muck up the software and configs that are currently running....

    portupgrade won't modify your config files. But be sure to read /usr/ports/UPDATING before you upgrade anything.

    You have good dumps, yes? And you've read /usr/ports/UPDATING, yes? And
    you've reviewed any changes to the Makefiles of the ports in question,
    yes? Then you shouldn't have any issues.
