1.Create  a copy of your Joomla1.5 template files
2.Delete the file ‘params.ini’
3.Copy the file "error.php" from default joomla 2.5 ‘automic’ theme
4.Make a 640 480 screenshot of your current theme and name it as ‘template_preview.png’.
5.Edit the file 'templateDetails.xml'  
6.Edit the file 'index.php'
7.Install the converted Joomla 2.5 template
