Running a Virtualbox Web Client

Ever wish VirtualBox had a web client similar to VMWares ESXi hypervisor? It can do that thanks to the software “PHPVirtualBox”.

Overall I really like this software, however I did encounter one problem in the setup that doesnt appear to be mentioned in the documentation for the project. if you get an error like:

Exception Object
[message:protected] => Could not connect to host (
[string:Exception:private] =>
=> 64
[file:protected] => /var/www/html/phpvirtualbox/endpoints/lib/vboxconnector.php
[line:protected] => 220
[trace:Exception:private] => Array

Then you probably want to go to your server and open a terminal and start “vboxwebsrv” by typing the same into the terminal window as the process is not started by Virtualbox by default.
