    there were some update tools (i dont know if they exist now)

    Go download the files and migrationassistant.tgz from here:

    Here is an overview of this process:

    1. Install on joomla 1.0.X
    2. export 1.0.X database too 1.5 format
    3. install a fresh copy of joomla 1.5.X without any data
    4. install migrationassistant.tgz into joomla 1.5.X  (there are also some plugins if you are using any components.)
    5. using migration assistant, you can import the data into the site.
    6. Now you will need to rebuild your template to be compatible with joomla 1.5. The big difference is that you will need to convert all the php methods to XML tags.
