When upgrading to Lotus Traveler 8.5.1

In case you are planning to upgrade to Lotus Traveler 8.5.1, ensure that you are replacing the index.html file in the <Domino data directory>\domino\html\traveler folder after the upgrade. The new file is provided as index_template.html and is part of the installation.

Without updating the index.html file, mobile users trying to download the updated phone client would still be getting the 8.5 version.

You can confirm that the new index.html page is in place when the Nokia Series 60 entry has been split up into a 3rd Edition and 5th Edition client as shown below.

  1. If I upgrade from 8.02 do I need to upgrade the phone client software if I upgrade Traveler to 8.5.1?
    Or can I do this when the users want new functionallity?

  2. Unfortunately I haven’t tested the interoperability between 8.0.2 clients and the 8.5.1 server. I can only confirm that 8.5 clients worked well with the 8.5.1 server.
    May I suggest setting up a test server and client in a virtual environment. Jake Howlett does have a couple of links on his blog that point you to various device emulators.

  3. Good stuff!
    Do you know whether I can install on a system running 64-bit Windows Server and 64-bit Domino?
