VBoxweb-service permission issue

Postby Gaijin66 » 9. Apr 2017, 19:15

Hello everyone,

I have a problem that i am struggling about for a while. Maybe i overlooked, but i cannot find an answer for this problem. I hope anyone can help. I am quite a newbie to linux.

I am using ubuntu lucid lynx. My virtualbox version is 4.3.38.

My /etc/default/virtualbox is as follows:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
VBOXWEB_USER=gerrit
VBOXWEB_HOST=127.0.0.1
VBOXWEB_LOGFILE=/var/log/vboxweb.log


The log file shows:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view

When i start vboxweb-service with:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo service vboxweb-service start

it says fail.

When i issue the following commands:
Code: Select all   Expand viewCollapse view
sudo -u gerrit /usr/bin/vboxwebsrv --background
sudo service vboxweb-service start

then it starts. But i will not do that everytime after my server starts. I will have it started automatically.

After examining the problem i found out that vboxweb-service will not write the pidfile /var/run/vboxwebservice. It also does not write /var/log/vboxweb.log.
So assume it has something to do with permissions, but i do not know how to resolve it.

Every help is appreciated.

Are you running the distro fork of VirtualBox or did you download it from virtualbox.org?

Normally this is a permission issue and acts differently with distro forks which we do not support here.

You could be right. Sorry I posted it here. I will ask somewhere else. This can be closed.
