So I've already checked through my config file and I really can't see an instance where any tag hasn't been properly closed...but I keep getting this configuration error...Would you mind taking a look through the error and the config file below? Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

FYI, I've already googled the life out of the error and looked through the log extensively, I really can't find anything.
