VMWare rocks. Specifically, the VMWare web management console which allows you to start and stop virtual machines from your browser AND connect consoles to them rocks big time!

The solution to this is to modify the
/etc/init.d/httpd.vmware. Just type
sudo pico /etc/init.d/httpd.vmware
search for “start)” and after this line add the following code:
if [ ! -d /var/run/vmware/httpd ] then mkdir /var/run/vmware/httpd chown www-data:nogroup /var/run/vmware/httpd chmod 700 /var/run/vmware/httpd fi
