Edit PHP.INI File with 1.0 install

I am in the process of updating our present website that is presently running joomla 1.0. All I have is the site files and sql dump, so I am installing 1.0 to my laptop with the local install instructions, so that I can migrate all of our data to 1.5 then to 2.5. My question is, do I need to Edit the PHP.INI File for the debugger to work correctly or does the newest version of XAMMP not need it edited.

hmmm, not sure that Joomla 1.0 will work in Xampp. No problem though, it doesn't need to be working for you to do a migration. All you need is the database and files. So just get mtw_migrator, create your Joomla 1.5 websites and also install the 1.0 database using phpmyadmin.

Next step is to go into Joomla 1.5 and install mtw_migrator and point it to the old Joomla 1.0 database and run your migration. That will pull your data into Joomla 1.5. You will need to copy your uploaded media files into the new installation manually, e.g. images/stories.

All that said I have managed to get Joomla 1.0 working on later versions of php but in this case I don't think you need to. If you really wanted to do it just reply here and I'll send you a link to show what code to change in the core files.
