    Error: listen EADDRINUSE: address already in use

    here is the clue Error: listen EADDRINUSE: address already in use
    some other process or another instance of MM is using the 8080 port. so either you need to stop that application or need to use another port.
    You can use another port in config.js file by changing it to some other value.

    port: 8080,

    also looks like there are issues with config.js correct them as well.

    SyntaxError: Unexpected identifier

    usually means a missing trailing comma on the previous line
