Install phpVirtualBox on CentOS 7.x

I have to say, I have been bursting with some excitement to recently discover this gem. phpVirtualBox is going to make a great addition to my server by allowing me to create and manage VirtualBox VM’s direct from my web browser.

Test that Apache is running and accessible by opening a browser and navigating to http://server_ip_address.

Install PHP
