First I am quite new to Ubuntu and trying to commit myself to it as a PHP developer. Well, I am running on a guest Xubuntu 12.10 system based on Windows7 host.

I shared my web_projects folder and managed to access it by adding my ubuntu user to vboxsf group under /media folder. I symlink a folder inside web_projects as virtual host but it simply says access denied because owner of shared folder is root. What I need to do is changing default owner of vbox shared folder so I can reach them through apache.

I made some digging[1] that ends up with:

yahya@ubuntu:~$ sudo mount -t sf_web_projects -o uid=1000,gid=1000 share /home/yahya/mirror
mount: unknown filesystem type 'sf_web_projects'
