Thanks Erik!

Here is the next big stumbling block.

On the older servers, (4.7 and 4.10) we user apache with mod_ssl and run a 
seperate daemon for the ssl (443) connections.

When we upgrade, will the certs and keys (created with 4.7 and 4.10) work 
using FreeBSD 6.2 and Apache 2.2 ?  or will I need to redo all the keys, 
csrs and order new certs?
