J 1.5.26 - unable to login to backend

I have a site in which I'm not able to login in backend after webhoten service provider updated PHP to 5.6.

I tried to set up a WAMP server with PHP 5.3.26 but I get all the same notifications and warnings than in the live site. ("Strict standards:..." & "Warning: Cannot modify header...")

I have a gut feeling that being unable to login backend is caused by too new MYSQL.
Am I right about this?

I totally noob with this kind of things and all help is welcome.

My goal is to make copy of live site run on my WAMP, migrate 1.5.26 -> 3.5.1 and then upload upgraded version to live site.
Now I can't start the migrate since I can't login to 1.5.26.

In configuration.php set var $error_reporting = '0'; to 0.

Thanks dhuelsmann.
With the WAMP version of the site changing $error_reporting doesn't have effect.
In live site I was able to get rid of most of the notifications by changing that value to 6xxx something.

On your wamp environment, search for and edit the following to the settings shown in your php.ini file
display_errors = Off
display_startup_errors = Off
log_errors = Off

Thanks Dave.
After a night sleep the WAMP site was partially functioning and I was able to login backend.

The migration is now done, but I'm facing other issues.
