Your version of config.php is out of date. It should contain something like the following :

if(!function_exists('_debug')) {
    function _debug($string) {
        @file_put_contents('/tmp/debug.log', $string, FILE_APPEND);

Pasting the above into config.php should fix your problem.... You might wish to change '/tmp/debug.log' to something else - e.g. 'c:\debug.log' if you're on Windows.
