This is to be expected when the configuration file is damaged.

You could start by renaming the damaged file and have CUPS generate
a new one which you then can start editing, or you could check if
there's a backup file /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.0 which you
can use instead (or for comparison). There should also be a template
file /usr/local/etc/cups/cupsd.conf.default which can be used.
This is the first step in getting CUPS running. If you have solved
that problem, accessing the web GUI should work (localhost:631), and
you can make any new changes from there.
As you already have cups_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf, it's easy to
check if CUPS is happy:
# service cupsd start
And then you'll see the start message. As I mentioned, there are also
log files in /var/log/cups which are valuable sources for further
