How to uninstall Virtul Box

  • if you want to uninstall only VB, then:

    sudo apt remove virtualbox-6.1

    or even better would be:

    sudo apt autoremove --purge virtualbox*

    You can probably uninstall php7.3-soap too and remove folder /var/www/phpvirtualbox

  • Hi greg77 , Thank you. Wish i had never installed this guide. Is there away to get rid of the WebGUI?

    from the guide i removed the following referances

    Create configfifle for website "phpvirtualbox-webgui" that runs in NGINX
    [tt]nano /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpvirtualbox-webgui[/tt]
    Create configuration file for "php-fpm"
    [tt]nano /etc/php/7.3/fpm/pool.d/phpvirtualbox-webgui.conf[/tt]
    Activate PHPVirtualbox website
    [tt]sudo ln -s /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpvirtualbox-webgui /etc/nginx/sites-enabled/[/tt]

    and then i restarted NGIX but the WebGUI is still there.

  • so you removed:

    sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpvirtualbox-webgui
    sudo rm /etc/php/7.3/fpm/pool.d/phpvirtualbox-webgui.conf
    sudo rm /etc/nginx/sites-available/phpvirtualbox-webgui

    and GUI is still there?

  • Please paste here a results of these two commands:

    find / -iname *phpvirtualbox*


    grep -R "phpvirtualbox" /etc/* | less

    1st will output all files matching pattern *phpvirtualbox* in their name (case insensitive)

    2nd will find all files in /etc which content word phpvirtualbox in them

    In both cases we expect config files of php or a web server.

  • Hi greg77 Thank you for your help, Had a power outage the other day but when everything was back up and running VB including the webGUI had deisapeared a long with all traces, so i guess everything is ok now.

    Now i just need to find a VB install that will work either via docker or script install.

    Thank you again.
