Hello,   I am proud to present: VirtualBox plugin for unRAID v5 and v6   The plugin installs both VirtualBox package and the VirtualBox Extension package (it does not ins

Looks like issue with 5.1.20 extension pack.  I see a brief question something like do I agree to these terms or whatever with a y/n? along the bottom of the GUI before a message saying install failed

Is there a reason this isn't in docker form? It seems having every addon in docker would make things simple and convenient in one location.

 

First,  I am not familiar with setting up docker.

Second, I am not sure it can run under docker.

Third, It will mean virtualization over virtualization and would probably hurt the VMs performance and probably limit accessability and performance to bare HW.

Thanks for the reply. Was was curious about that and didn't think about the whole virtualization on top of virtualization.

Hi,

Not sure where this message will end up ...

Last couple of days / week tried several times to login with phpvirtualbox.

To no avail, obviously.

So what is wrong?

Everything required is running (virtualbox, vboxwebsrv) and I get to he login page, but not even the default admin / admin works. Recovery.php (to reset the default admin / admin) does not work either.

 

Setting var $noAuth = true; lets me in (without username / password, as expected).

But I  would prefer to really login.

 

Any thoughts?

Permissions issue?

Which webserver are you using to host phpvirtualbox?

I'm using the Apache webserver by dmacias72. As a direct plugin; not using a dockerized webserver.

I'm using the same webserver plugin, and I just turned on authentication and ssl in the webserver instead of using the phpvirtualbox authentication. Makes it much easier as I just have a single ssl login to get to several reverse proxied hosts as well as the phpvirtualbox.

Maybe I am being a little ridiculous here, but I think the better question is why ANYONE is still using virtualbox.  I am seeing much better performance out of the unraid 6 built in platform and had very little trouble moving my VM over

Some people have not upgraded to 6 and some feel comfortable with virtual box

When you stop the array, does the VM save state and then resume when the array is restarted automatically?

Just came back from a long vacation.

Need to understand the exact limitations of the 6.1 security checks.

 

I will update all my plugins to 6.1 - probably not keep 6.0 compatibility.

 

Also need to understand why virtualbox 5 is not compiling.

Any chance you have had time to look into this?  I have a rare requirement to run a VBox Image next week for some training and this would have been perfect.

 

What unRAID version are you running?

 

I am compiling the latest VirtualBox v4 (4.3.30) right now for unRAID v6.1.2 (kernel v4.1.5) so everyone can at least keep using VirtualBox until I get the VirtualBox v5 compilation correct.

 

And will update the plugin for 6.1 compatibility.

Updated plugin:

 

2015.09.17

  - Added unRAID 6.1 compatibility and keep backward compatibility

 

This will allow you to run the Virtualbox plugin also on unraid v6.1.x and onwards.

 

I will now try and get Virtualbox 5.0.x compiled...
