If you have another machine you can do this with much less stress.
1.Build the second machine (aka "new" server);
2. Rsync the files over (or from a backup).
3. Pull the network plug on the original;
4. Run a script to fire off any extra ip addresses for your "new" server.
5. Apachectl startssl on the "new" server.

Now it should be running and you can do spot checks to see how your
crucial sites are doing... If everything is ok thats great! If not then
pull the network plug on the "new" server and plug the old one back in
while you see where the problems are on the new one...
