What is the most safe way to upgrade it, remembering that this is production

6.2-RC1 -> 6.2 RELEASE -> 7.2 RELEASE -> 8.0 RELEASE, or somehow in this

Depending on what your requirements for "production" might be and how good know FreeBSD, this is a good enough path. The officially recommended one also includes 6.4, but if the configuration is simple enough (no fancy partitioning, no software RAID), you could simply skip from 6.2RC1 all the way to 8.0 if you know what you are doing.

Regardless, you will need to upgrade all of the installed ports (you can do it at the end, no need to upgrade every time).

In any case, don't do it remotely (without access to a physical console), this is a long upgrade path for it to simply work the first time. As others said, you can recover FreeBSD from practically any disaster involving such an upgrade, but it won't necessarily be easy.
