I've installed Ubuntu Server 10 on the virtual machine (VMWare) and that i have setup a Light stack. Everything runs fine after i visit "mysitename" in Opera around the linux virtual machine, however when I attempt to gain access to it on my small home windows machine, it only provides me with the HTML during my .php file, and doesn't execute the PHP. Can anybody provide a few recommendations? I am speculating it will likely be an apache setting, but I am unsure.

What URL are you currently being able to access out of your Home windows machine? Are you certain the PHP file is really construed when you are being able to access it in the Linux Guest?
