you can't start web sharing if there are errors in httpd.conf

If you haven't changed httpd.conf ever, then copy the httpd.conf from another mac os x computer. The .bak and .default files on my mac are for unix computers - they tell apache to look in public_html instead of Sites and have not been customized for os x.
