The error that you included sounds like there is already an application running on port 8140. Also, Puppet Server contains an embedded web server that replaces the older Apache/Passenger setup, so, since you've included your passenger configuration files I suspect that what may be happening is that Apache has already bound port 8140 by the time you attempt to start the Puppet Server service.
