    There was an error obtaining the list of registered virtual machines from VirtualBox. Make sure vboxwebsrv is running and that the settings in config.php are correct.

    The list of virtual machines will not begin auto-refreshing again until this page is reloaded.

    (General communication failure)

    OK

    It sounds like some sort of communication problem between the host on which your web server is running and the host on which the web browser is running. Are these on the same, or different hosts?

    The phpvirtualbox runs on my rootserver.
    Im connecting over the internet to them.

    But why the failure comes everytime, if i like to set a new VDI
    http://s7.postimg.org/k008ss4kr/phpvirtualbox_failer.jpg

    How can i create a VM over the shell, an the same time it was listen by phpvirtualbox?

    EG:
    Normaly i dont like this was, but i have test this:
    su root -c "vboxwebsrv"
    and with this users it works o.O
    But i can Read wn Write in this path...

    vbox@server:/srv/vbox/VirtualBox VMs$ touch test.txt
    vbox@server:/srv/vbox/VirtualBox VMs$ ls -l
    insgesamt 4
    -rw-r--r-- 1 vbox vboxusers 0 21. Aug 21:54 test.txt
    drwx------ 2 vbox vboxusers 4096 8. Aug 23:39 Win7
    vbox@server:/srv/vbox/VirtualBox VMs$

    That's odd. When you run it as the vbox user and you get the error from phpVirtualBox, does vboxwebsrv continue running?
