You need to move the LocalSettings.php up one level from the config/ dir 
and leave the index.php alone. This would do it on Unix:

cd <your wiki top dir>
mv config/LocalSettings.php ..

The '..' means move it up one dir (don't omit the space before the 
'..'). That is for Unix, Linux, etc. If you are on some other OS you 
need to say so.

Good luck. I had the same trouble myself just a few days ago.
