Where do I look next for a clue as to what is wrong or what might need to be fixed so I can resume using Server to manage the web sharing service? The service is running it serves up web pages , but I'd like to get control back of the settings or at least know what has broken to prevent the Server app from reading the settings.
I finally have had the chance to blow away this pesky server and no amount of digging yielded a clue how to avoid a reset of www - so that's what I did. I had since updated it to I shut down all services except for File Sharing, DNS and Open Directory and did the following steps to force down apache and force a reset. Even trying to stop the web service using sudo serveradmin stop web kept failing with the errors above about xswebconfig and undefined methods of nil classes. At this point refreshing the Server app corrected the errors reading the settings.
Thanks to this hint on cleaning up apache to get me most of the way to my solution.

Aug 23, 3: Sep 26, 6: Beno 44's tip seems to have gotten things back in working order. Jan 22, I use network based Time Machine to back up several workstations in our lab. File Sharing failed, thus Time Machine failed.
One word of caution, however; all was working quite smoothly, until eventually File Sharing failed again, with the same error messages. The second major failure must have occurred about a month later. It is unclear to me what may have triggered it. If anyone has any ideas, please post.
