As with all upgrades, there are probably some general guidelines to
follow. I don't recall anything specific to upgrading. However, if you run
ssh I'd do something like the following:
make sure that your ssh stop script does not kill current connections. If
you monitor ssh with monit, then running <ssh stop script> and seeing if
you get booted is a good idea. Hopefully, you don't get booted. If you do,
them monit will start up ssh for you again, and you can remove that from
being monitored.
Then you can stop monit (which shouldn't kill the programs it's
monitoring) install the new one and make sure it's working. Basically,
I've had no problems as long as I leave a remote shell running for me that
I can fix things.
If you're a little more paranoid, you could first install the new version
of monit, and use an alternate config file to test it out. Or you could
have 2 remote shells running, and execute the command in one shell:
monit quit; sleep 500; monit

so that monit can come up and restart sshd should something bad happen.

Generally speaking, you should apply best sys admin practices and you
should be OK, standard disclaimers apply.
