    Supose i install a tarball (binary) file. say for eg. apache 1.2.12.tar.gz
    and i have extracted it with following commands:
    tar -xvzf apache 1.2.12.tar.gz
    ./configure
    make
    make install

    now incase a new version of apache: apache 1.3.tar.gz (or say for any other software comes) then how do i go bout upgrading from the old to the new.
    (dont tell me you gonna delete all those files u installed)

    Yes, but not quite. Let say the installed layout are the same, simply backup your httpd.conf, check for new changes, then remove all the others and rebuild your new version.

    how do i check for the new changes??

    >>then remove all the others and rebuild your new version.
    what if my files are all scattered ....its gonna be hard to remove them...(especialy searching for them).
    what exactly u mean be rebuild ...does that mean i give a ./configure command... or is it only the make part.

    Like the diff of 1.2.x and 1.3.12 of your httpd.conf

    >>its gonna be hard to remove them...(especialy searching for them).

    Check your config.layout. It specified the installed path.

    >>does that mean i give a ./configure command... or is it only the make part.

    It doesn't matter your previous apache was using DSO or compiled-in. You need to start from scratch including ./configure, make and make install.
