phpvirtualbox ( is quite a wonderful project, rendering the managing of vbox a breeze on servers.

But his author is not able anymore to sustain it for free due to personal issues.

Please consider to take over the project, or fund the developer for its development.

Phpvirtualbox is really a great bonus for virtualbox, don't let it go!

Certainly it's a tremendously useful project, but we'd like to keep it run by the community. It helps us focusing on our strengths, the improvement of the virtualizer. We're no PHP/HTML/... experts by any standards, so we wouldn't be efficient in maintaining such a project.

No volunteers out there who'd like to pick up? It doesn't have to be a single person, the work can be shared.

It's been many months since the phpVirtualbox project appears to have mothballed. I currently have a server on 4.1.18 which I'm not upgrading to 4.2.x because it really needs phpVirtualbox for management and I'm unsure that the 4.2.x strain of the phpVirtualbox code will work properly nor whether the project will die. It would be nice if someone who knows PHP/HTML and has an interest in Virtualbox / Virtualisation would take it over, but I'm losing faith that that will happen :-(
