Upgrade to OES2018 when GW2014 is installed

Is there a way to upgrade an OES2015 server with installed GW2014 to OES2018? ... and how?

Upgrading to OES2018 also installs Apache2.4 which breaks GW2014 install.
First upgrading GW to GW18 is possible but again the following upgrade to Apache2.4 breaks GW install.

Any way a dead end 😞


By the way: I miss a OES 2018 tag

Sometimes a migration is the way to go. Considering vmware states that
they don't support major guest OS upgrades,
and with some very good reasoning. It allows for leaving old bits
behind that the new platform doesn't require or could even cause grief
on the new system.
Migration also gives you an easier fail back and potentially shorter
outage window.
Then perhaps you could also go to GW 2018 at the same time. This is
the path I am looking at for my clients.
