That's the more important question. I think that upgrading the 
configuration of your software will take more time than upgrading FreeBSD.

For example: apache22 port has a different (and better) configuration 
file structure than 2.0, and some web application still don't work with 
php 5.3.

If you know reasonably good enough how FreeBSD works, I don't think you 
will have trouble with that part of the upgrade (especially if you have 
a remote KVM or other console access).
