You just need a copy of the database available on a working MySQL instance on your server. Then you simply unpack the Large Upgrade package into the directory on your server where you want the forum to exist and run the upgrader by navigating to upgrade.php in your browser.Because upgrading to a new version of SMF involves replacing all the PHP files, it doesn't matter whether the server's installed version of PHP supports the old SMF version's PHP files. It only matters whether the server's version of PHP supports the new SMF version's PHP files.Of course, if you want to have a running clone of your SMF 1.x forum on your local server, then yes, you need to have a compatible version of PHP installed on the server. But the SMF 1.x forum doesn't need to be running in order to be upgraded; it just needs to have an intact database.
