It's not "old", it's "ancient" and very insecure.

The chances that TYPO3 4.0.x will work with PHP 5.4 are almost zero 
unless you are willing to fix all the PHP issues yourself. Compatibility 
with modern browsers will most certainly be an issue (it was released 10 
years ago, the last version is almost 7 years old).

You could try to upgrade to 4.5 first, then go to 6.2 and finally to 
7LTS. Depending on the extensions you use you have more or less work 
ahead of you.
Please not that the upgrade wizards that are in 4.5 were removed in 6.2 
and the upgrade wizards in 6.2 were removed in 7, etc.

If you insist on using such old versions of TYPO3 then you have to use 
the old server software that it was designed for.
