Mod. Note: Relocated the topic to the Joomla 1.5 Forum.

You are running an outdated version of Joomla that is not supported any more for the last five years.
I suspect that your host have upgraded php to a version that the old Joomla version cannot handle.

Are you on version 1.5.26?

https://docs.joomla.org/Portal:Upgrading_Versions#Migration_1.5_to_3.x

You need new extensions and new template that are 3.7 compatible.

https://downloads.joomla.org/cms/joomla15/1-5-26/joomla_1-5-0_to_1-5-26-stable-patch_package-zip?format=zip

Unzip and upload to the site overwriting all files. That will bring you up to 1.5.26.

It might be quicker to install the latest Joomla (without sample data) and rebuild the site. Find extensions then manually copy/paste the Articles etc. If you use an extension to migrate ... it will not migrate your Template or extensions.

Depends on the persons general computer knowledge and the quality of the server they are working on. If you have good (or reasonable) computer knowledge install a localhost on your PC. Then install two instances of Joomla one with sample data and one without. If you can do that then you will be able to use Joomla with ease. But if you have difficulty installing a localhost on your PC and installing Joomla then you will have not passed the first hurdle.

How much computer/server experience etc. do you have ?
