If you are using FTP or SSH, do you just overwrite the existing installation? These kind of details are critical especially when upgrading a live site.
I am also trying to upgrade from 18.104.22.168 to 1.5. Magento Connect manager does not say there is an update at all so I assume my only solution is FTP or SSH which I can handle but I need to know what I am replacing.
