    Love the tutorial. Although I might add, You can set this up to run on boot..
    echo ‘avi123’ | sudo -u avi sudo -S vboxwebsrv -H -b –logfile /dev/null >/dev/null

    the echo will be the password,
    That command basicly starts it in the back end but you can also start a cronjob with this eg
    sudo crontab -e
    @reboot echo ‘avi123’ | sudo -u avi sudo -S vboxwebsrv -H -b –logfile /dev/null >/dev/null

    Hi So I try to install as you show, but still at the error page when i try to log in.
    In /etc/init.d, there’s no virtualbox folder, it’s only : vboxautostart-service, vboxdrv, vboxweb-service, vboxballoonctrl-service, netconsole, network.

    The only way to log in is to issue the command : vboxwebsrv -H
    But that need to run all the time, if we stop with ctrl-c I can’t log anymore.

    So I’m not sure why i can’t autorun ? Or how to put as autorun, like in

      You may like to tell us which Linux Distribution your are using for details of adding a program/Service at startup

      You may ask your community how to add a service/command/script to start at boot. You may either write a two line script or add the command directly.

      Hope it helps.
