The problem is that the user 'sunandar' cannot read or write to files in 
the directory listed in your config.

Of course, those directories need to exist to be used as well, check and 
make sure, then:

(as root)
chown sunandar.sunandar /usr/var/log/icecast \
        /usr/share/icecast/web \
        /usr/share/icecast/admin \
