Before answering your question - let me just say this. Running old 
versions of webapps is not a good idea. That version of joomla is quite 
old, and has a number of high risk vulnerabilities - some of which 
include SQL injection vulnerabilities which could allow an attacker to 
modify mysql database content. See the CVE link below for more 
information on vulnerability details.

1.5.25 is no longer available - There is a 1.5.26 version available. I 
would guess (you should confirm) that the updater will also work from 
1.5.26. Instructions to update to 1.5.26 are available here

You can probably use the tool from that point onwards.
