I have cakephp application working fine through browser etc., but when I run cron way calling some controller (cron) , I get the below error on this line,

error line -> DEBUG=3;
return $config['Cake.version'] = '2.0.0-dev';

2 ->PHP Parse error:  syntax error, unexpected '=' in /var/www/xxxx/core/cake/config/config.php on line 19

Show the code. It does not look correct
In php you have VARs with $ but not FUNCTIONs with $
so
$somevar = config($someparm);

It may be the constant value written in the  config Like below:
Configure::write('debug', 3);

If that's in the 'configure.php' file, yours does not match what I just downloaded.  If this is a new installation, you should look at getting a newer version of CakePHP.  https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/tags

Here is an example of a core configuration file

https://github.com/cakephp/cakephp/blob/master/app/Config/core.php

There is no way your statement would work in PHP regardless of framework in my opinion

I agree with @mplungjan, I don't see how it would ever work.

>>or something with out $ symbol ?
In PHP, variables have the '$' prefix, but constants do not.  So, to set DEBUG to 3 (without the '$') you would need to use define():

<?php
define('DEBUG',3);//After this line DEBUG is a constant - you cannot reassign a value to it
echo DEBUG; //should show 3
?>
