The instructions to upgrade to IBM Lotus Quickr 8.2 from Lotus Quickr 8.1 are included as part of the Version 8.2 documentation. Those instructions are for an in-place upgrade, where the Quickr system files are updated while retaining your data files on the existing Lotus Quickr server.
To upgrade from IBM Lotus QuickPlace® 6.5.1 or 7.0 to Lotus Quickr 8.2, you need to perform a side-by-side upgrade. In a side-by-side upgrade, a new target server is needed that runs IBM Lotus Domino® 8.5 and Quickr 8.2. The Lotus QuickPlace data files and system settings are first migrated to the target server, then upgraded to Lotus Quickr 8.2.
For Microsoft® Windows® or IBM AIX® systems, the Lotus QuickPlace and Lotus Quickr servers must be on separate systems. For IBM i® systems, these servers can be on the same or separate systems.
The following instructions describe how to upgrade from Lotus QuickPlace 6.5.1 or 7.0 to Lotus Quickr 8.2.
1. Preparing to upgrade

2. Starting to upgrade
You are ready to upgrade to IBM Lotus Quickr servers for your operating system on Microsoft® Windows®, IBM i®, or IBM AIX® after completing the preparatory steps.
3. Completing the upgrade
After you have installed the IBM Lotus Quickr and IBM Lotus Domino servers and copied the Lotus QuickPlace files to the new server, you must complete the upgrade process.
