You can restart Apache from the Terminal, but just with what you've described, I'm not entirely sure what the issue was. The Sharing SysPref will appear to stall when there's an error in your config file, so I'm assuming you had fixed that error before you tired to "stop and start" with the gooey button.

If this happens again, you can check that your config file is in good working order with "httpd -t" and then restart the server manually with "sudo apachectl start". Likewise, stopping the server can be done with "sudo apachectl stop".
