    Exclamation Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '['

    So, Right off the bat, I am not a coder, So if this is the most simplest and stupidest mistake Don't judge me.

    The code... Online 26... (Bottomest Line)
    Error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected '['
    PHP Code:
    //    ****** DATABASE TYPE ******
        //    This is the type of the database server on which your vBulletin database will be located.
        //    Valid options are mysql and mysqli, for slave support add _slave.  Try to use mysqli if you are using PHP 5 and MySQL 4.1+
        // for slave options just append _slave to your preferred database type.
    $config['Database']['dbtype'] = 'mysql'

    I sure hope my registration here was worth it

    PHP frequently finds errors but gets the wrong line number. Please post the entire code.
