I have been using phpvirtualbox on my host server to run two virtualbox guests for a LAMP stack and a Media server. Up until now it has been working fine. I just began to install the virtualbox guest additions and when I rebooted the system I could no longer access the phpvirtualbox web ui. I am prompted for my login, then get an error as follows: Could not connect to host (

I click on the details and it shows the following:
Exception Object
[messagerotected] => Could not connect to host (
[string:Exceptionrivate] =>
[coderotected] => 64
[filerotected] => /var/www/phpvirtualbox/lib/ajax.php
[linerotected] => 128
[trace:Exceptionrivate] => Array

[previous:Exceptionrivate] =>

I have tried restarting vboxweb-service multiple times without success. I have also seen elsewhere online to try vboxwebsrv >nul which results in :
Oracle VM VirtualBox web service Version 4.3.10_Ubuntu

Also, I have tried running vboxwebsrv -H which resulted in:
