Error installing 1.9

I am following the directions from this blog: that I found while searching these forums.

I have gotten to the 5th/6th step with no problems, but when I type in localhost/moodle/ into my address bar I get the following error

( ! ) Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING in C:\wamp\www\moodle\config.php on line 59
Call Stack
1 0.0010 819976 {main}egg ..\index.php:0

 If anyone could point me in the right direction I would be greatly appreciative!

The PHP parser has found a syntax error.

It could be in any of the *.php files. Unless something went wrong during upload and/or unzip, start with the config.php file. has a sample of the config.php. The syntax is
$CFG->variable = 'value';

If the value is empty it is
$CFG->variable = '';
