    I have phpVirtualBox set up such that it runs from a symlink directory in the VirtualBox user's home directory -- Apache is configured to run the code in the directory /home/vboxuser/phpVirtualBox, and that is a symlink to phpvirtualbox-4.2-4.

    I went to install the latest, 4.2-8, by downloading and unzipping the source to /home/vboxuser/phpvirtualbox-4.2-8, copying the config.php file, and changing the symlink to point to the new directory (then restarting vboxweb-service for good measure). (I've done the exact same steps going from 4.1-10 to 4.2-0 to 4.2-1 to 4.2-4.) But when I hit the site from my browser, I get a completely blank page (IE11 and Chrome). I can view the source and see a lot of JavaScript in the <head>, and a table with five rows in the <body>, but no displayable content in any of it.

    If I switch the symlink back to the 4.2-4 directory, it goes back to working exactly as before in my browser of choice.

    Hello,

    Did you clear your browser's cache after upgrading?

    Yeah, that was the first thing I tried, both browsers (IE & Chrome).

    In chrome, use the javascript console (Tools -> JavaScript console) and load phpVirtualBox. Do you see any errors in the console?

    Hmm, a bunch of 403:Forbidden responses, looks like everything in /js and /rdpweb. Looks like when I unzipped it, all of the directories got permissions of rwx------. Odd that it wouldn't work, since the site is supposed to be running as the same user.

    Fixed up the permissions and it works fine now.
