This is NOT a modified PostgreSQL server.  We are not using any externally
supplied C language functions or modules.  However, we did have to upgrade
from what CPanel put on the server (it used version 7.x) and I don't know
what CPanel has done.

We did have a hard drive problem (errors on the drive) in the past and they
had to swap out a drive.  It is a RAID configuration so no backup/restore
was necessary.  We do have intermittent problems with the server and believe
it is related to Postgres.  Our SA assures us there are currently no system
errors or other indications of hard drive problems.

We want to do an upgrade but are apprehensive as this is a production
server.  Is there a place we can go to to get a good idea of how to perform
an upgrade with as little interruption to service as possible?
