Parse error after editing wp-config.php for Domain Mapping plugin

I followed the install instructions with the plugin - uncommenting Sunrise. After uploading the wp-config.php i got this error:

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected $end in /home/wwwbeat/public_html/wp-config.php on line 1

I tried undoing what I did and re-uploading the wp-config.php file and I still get the error. Please help I've been configuring for two days and don't want to start all over with a new install.

    Typing in all caps is the equivalent of yelling. That is most definitely not required here as we're trying to help you.

    The WPMU forums and the wp-config.php itself say not to edit the file.

    It's perfectly acceptable to edit wp-config.php for things like uncommenting sunrise.php. Ask any WP or WPMU developer.

    Is there a fix for my issue or do I need to give up and reinstall?

    Copy/paste (or attach as a text file) your wp-config.php contents with the db details and security keys masked (replace the username, password, and keys with *******). We'll have a look and see if we can spot your problem.

    Certainly not yelling at anyone - just wanted to be noticed. Sorry. Here is the wp-config.php file...

    * The base configurations of the WordPress.
    * Do not try to create this file manually. Read the README.txt and run the
    * web installer.
    * This file has the following configurations: MySQL settings, Table Prefix,
    * Secret Keys, WordPress Language, and ABSPATH. You can find more information by
    * visiting {@link Editing
    * wp-config.php} Codex page. You can get the MySQL settings from your web host.
    * This file is used by the wp-config.php creation script during the
    * installation.
    * @package WordPress

    // ** MySQL settings - You can get this info from your web host ** //
    /** The name of the database for WordPress */
    define('DB_NAME', '***');

    /** MySQL database username */
    define('DB_USER', '****');

    /** MySQL database password */
    define('DB_PASSWORD', '****l');

    /** MySQL hostname */
    define('DB_HOST', 'localhost');

    /** Database Charset to use in creating database tables. */
    define('DB_CHARSET', 'utf8');

    /** The Database Collate type. Don't change this if in doubt. */
    define('DB_COLLATE', '');
    define('VHOST', 'yes');
    $base = '/';
    define('DOMAIN_CURRENT_SITE', '' );
    define('PATH_CURRENT_SITE', '/' );
    define('SITE_ID_CURRENT_SITE', 1);
    define('BLOGID_CURRENT_SITE', '1' );

    * Authentication Unique Keys.
    * Change these to different unique phrases!
    * You can generate these using the {@link secret-key service}
    * You can change these at any point in time to invalidate all existing cookies. This will force all users to have to log in again.

    * WordPress Database Table prefix.
    * You can have multiple installations in one database if you give each a unique
    * prefix. Only numbers, letters, and underscores please!
    $table_prefix = 'wp_';

    * WordPress Localized Language, defaults to English.
    * Change this to localize WordPress. A corresponding MO file for the chosen
    * language must be installed to wp-content/languages. For example, install
    * to wp-content/languages and set WPLANG to 'de' to enable German
    * language support.
    define ('WPLANG', '');

    // double check $base
    if( $base == 'BASE' )
    die( 'Problem in wp-config.php - $base is set to BASE when it should be the path like "/" or "/blogs/"! Please fix it!' );

    // uncomment this to enable wp-content/sunrise.php support
    define( 'SUNRISE', 'on' );

    // uncomment to move wp-content/blogs.dir to another relative path
    // remember to change WP_CONTENT too.
    // define( "UPLOADBLOGSDIR", "fileserver" );

    // If VHOST is 'yes' uncomment and set this to a URL to redirect if a blog does not exist or is a 404 on the main blog. (Useful if signup is disabled)
    // For example, the browser will redirect to for the following: define( 'NOBLOGREDIRECT', '' );
    // Set this value to %siteurl% to redirect to the root of the site
    // define( 'NOBLOGREDIRECT', '' );
    // On a directory based install you must use the theme 404 handler.

    // Location of mu-plugins
    // define( 'WPMU_PLUGIN_DIR', '' );
    // define( 'WPMU_PLUGIN_URL', '' );
    // define( 'MUPLUGINDIR', 'wp-content/mu-plugins' );

    define( "WP_USE_MULTIPLE_DB", false );

    /* That's all, stop editing! Happy blogging. */

    /** WordPress absolute path to the Wordpress directory. */
    if ( !defined('ABSPATH') )
    define('ABSPATH', dirname(__FILE__) . '/');

    /** Sets up WordPress vars and included files. */
    require_once(ABSPATH . 'wp-settings.php');

Thank NAME, for their help.

Let NAME know exactly why they deserved these points.

Gift a custom amount of points.
