Can someone access my site running on a virtual server?

I'm running a virtual server, Apache, MAMP, and MySQL. I understand this is only accessible from those on my network.

The reason I'm asking is so I can allow my employers to view the site without uploading to the old one.

I'm assuming I'll need amazon free tier? Something free? Or do I just open a port in apache and give my ip and local address?

I'm running osx not that that matter I would think.

You need port 80 open, Apache listening on it and anyone in your local network can access your web server, by IP.

By this you mean local ip. So when I present this it might be easier to upload to a sub directory of the website?

Depends on what you want to do, and the current topology of your network.
If you have an internal DNS server, you can give the site an address that your employers can actually remember (like site.domain.local).

But even if you do not, usually http://your-computer-name/ will point to your site, but only from the internal network.

If you need to make your site available from outside your network, then yes, uploading it to your website is the easier method.
