Change OVPN Port from console

Hi there… I've done something stupid...
In my attempts to connect to my home VPN server from work, I've managed to lock myself out.
Here's what happened:
1. My OVPN home server connects on 1194
2. My office blocks outbound connections on 1194 - therefore could not connect
3. I already have a web server connecting at home on 443, so I changed my OVPN server to listen on 80 - which was also my WEBGui
4. Now I can't connect to OVPN - my office seems to be blocking outbound, encrypted traffic on 80 - and I can't connect to the WEBGui on 80
When I get home and have access to the machine, I can get into the console ... or can I connect to the pfSense box on 80 from the LAN? Maybe I can do that... just thought of that as I was writing this...
OVPN is listening on 80 but to the WAN port, if I connect to 192.168.1.1:80 from within the LAN I should be able to get to the pfSense config, right?
Otherwise, my question was going to be either:
A) how do I shut off the OVPN server from the console? or..
B) how can I change the port the WEBGui is using from the console?
Would either of those work? I know if I shut down the OVPN server, there's still firewall rules sending packets from the WAN side to port 80 of the pfSense box.
