Running a Web Based Virtualization Software Married to PHP can be done with a good project named phpVirtualBox. You can run on localhost or any LAMP Server. There is reason to give the title the name – Running a Web Based Virtualization Software Married to PHP. Because it is an one person developed project and the person who is getting married soon / got married, so he might not be able to support it without a New Project Lead. Definitely, he is not getting married to PHP but a nice human (I do not know anyone) and he is quite careful about his duties. In this kick starter guide on Running a Web Based Virtualization Software, we will show the excellent web software’s features and usage created by this nice person. Actually the web software is based on PHP, it is a Free / open source web software using the VirtualBox user interface with AJAX implementation. Virtualization got married to PHP. It is a real fairy tale and we will wish the best for this couple and the real life couple.
It is very important to state that, as a developer, if one can not maintain the Free / open source for reason, ask others in this way to take it over, many forget to give this opportunity to the other developers, development momentarily halts. It is also very important for the developer to make sure that the next person will not forget to mention and keep the name of the original developer, keep a way to have the full access etc.
