Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING

Hey,
I am helping a buddy set-up his website again and I have got this error but am not seeing what is wrong. Any help would be great.

ERROR "Parse error: parse error, unexpected T_CONSTANT_ENCAPSED_STRING in /home/juicedom/public_html/config.php on line 72"

Code:
69 // You only need to change this if you moved or renamed the public_html
70 // directory. In that case, you should specify the complete path to the
71 // directory like this (i.e. without the $_CONF['/home/juicedom/public_html']):
72 // $_CONF['path_html'] = ['/home/juicedom/public_html'];
73 $_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . '';

Well line 73 has a problem. Take out the period and quotation mark at the end. The line should end with a semi colon. You are also making 'path_html' = to 'path'. Be sure that is what you want to do. I think you REALLY want this

$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/';

I can't exactly tell without more of your config.php. But it seems the config.php file is located in your public html. I don't think that is advisable. It should be in /home/juicedom

Lib-common needs to be edited so that it looks to /home/juicedom/config.php

So then

$_CONF['path'] = '/home/juicedom/';

$_CONF['path_html'] = $_CONF['path'] . 'public_html/';

In lib-common.php

require_once( '/home/juicedom/config.php' );

If that doesn't work, then you may have white space at the beginning or end of lib-common (or even in config.php). Check to make sure all files are where they should be.

Also keep in mind that the actual problem may be before that line mentioned in the error message.
