phpvirtualbox tutorial - problem
 
Hi,

I have followed the tutorial at http://www.howtoforge.com/managing-a...x-ubuntu-12.04 but have an error when I try to login at myserver/phpvirtualbox/

I use the default username/password (admin/admin) but get the following error message:

Code:

Exception Object
(
    [message:protected] => Error logging in to vboxwebsrv.
    [string:Exception:private] =>
    [code:protected] => 64
    [file:protected] => /var/www/phpvirtualbox/lib/vboxconnector.php

                )

                        )

                )

        )

    [previous:Exception:private] =>
)

The only information in the logfile is

Code:

VirtualBox web service 4.1.18 r78361 linux.amd64 (Jun 20 2012 14:50:49) release log
00:00:00.000 main    Log opened 2012-08-17T12:52:51.706645000Z

/var/log/vboxweb.log (END)

The output of
Code:

ps aux | grep vbox
is:

Code:

vbox      3863  0.0  0.1 116336  6048 ?        S    13:50  0:00 /usr/lib/virtualbox/VBoxXPCOMIPCD

mark      5059  0.0  0.0  9384  924 pts/2    S+  15:19  0:00 grep --color=auto vbox

I have tried commenting/uncommenting the noauth in
Code:

/var/www/phpvirtualbox/config.php
but it doesn't really make any difference.

My
Code:

/etc/default/virtualbox
looks like:

Code:

VBOXWEB_USER=vbox
VBOXWEB_LOGFILE=/var/log/vboxweb.log

Can anyone help please?

thanks

Mark

Have you added yourself to the vbox group?

Yep -
Code:

groups
mark adm cdrom sudo dip plugdev sambashare lpadmin vboxusers

You should try adding yourself to the http group(or whatever it is called on your distro). It allows you to do some server stuff regular users cannot.

Hi,

I solved this by logging in as user 'vbox' and issuing the command
Code:

VBoxManage setproperty websrvauthlibrary null
