    I have an apache server, with php and mysql, running on Ubuntu through VMware Fusion. I can access the site fine on the same computer, in Mac OS X, but not on any other computers. My network settings for Ubuntu are set to NAT. Any ideas how I can access the server from another computer over Wi-Fi?

    set network to bridged on Ubuntu, not NAT. your machine will get a DHCP address from your local network and not from your mac.
