/etc/init.d/vboxweb-...

Running Ubuntu 10.04 with 3.2.10.



I noticed that it comes with /etc/init.d/vboxweb-service to control the
webservice.



It checks for the existence of /etc/vbox/vbox.cfg or
/etc/default/virtualbox.



Neither of those files exist in the package. Is there an example file that
should be included to configure the web service?

Hi Geoff,

It looks like this is missing (at least in the .deb package) and the
init script will not start vboxwebsrv unless VBOXWEB_USER is set.
Create /etc/default/virtualbox with the following contents:

#VBOXWEB_USER=
#VBOXWEB_HOST=
#VBOXWEB_PORT=
#VBOXWEB_TIMEOUT=
#VBOXWEB_CHECK_INTERVAL=
#VBOXWEB_THREADS=
#VBOXWEB_KEEPALIVE=
#VBOXWEB_LOGFILE=

Uncomment (remove the '#') and place something directly after the '='
to specify a setting. From what I can see, the only required setting
is VBOXWEB_USER. E.g.

VBOXWEB_USER=vbox
