This piece of code is a Class, which forms part of the OO techniques built into PHP. OO in itself is a very large subject, so, it would be impossible for me to write a massive post explaining it all, but, you can try the following links:

PHP Class

Within the code we have this:

public $config = array(); The public in this example tells the interpereter what the restrictions are of accessing this member (where the member is $config) and it's just assigning an array to this value. I assume you know what Arrays are? If not, there are tutorials online which will help to explain this.

IMO I think you should stay away from classes, and object-oriented programming until you know the basics of PHP or language syntax, logic and structure. Try not to download code, that you do not understand. :)

Hope this helps
