comment How to connect my Ubuntu server to VirtualBox Ubuntu guest installation
Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have read your answer,but am still none the wiser. Would you be kind enough to enumerate the actual STEPS I need to carry out in order to be able to log into my Ubuntu machine from my VBox Ubuntu guest?.

comment How to connect my Ubuntu server to VirtualBox Ubuntu guest installation
To clarify then, it seems I want to be doing things (it's not clearto me whether they are separate). 1. Connect remotely to the server as myself, from the host OS 2. mount one of the drives of the server on the guest OS (so I can save data to it). HTH

@ThomasW. The network adapter configuration is on the Guest is NAT. I have to point out that it is important that the Guest OS has internet access, since I will be retrieving data from the internet on the guest machine, and saving it on the server (using sshfs).

Actually I thought of recreating the files as you suggest, but thought it best to come in here and ask first, in case I waste even more time doing soething that dosen't work.. I'll try what you suggest and report back.

comment apt-get no longer works after manually deleting folders of a previously installed application
Thanks for your feedback, but are you by any chance guessing how to fix this?. I get the error: " dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of postgresql-8.4: postgresql-8.4 depends on postgresql-client-8.4; however: Package postgresql-client-8.4 is not configured yet." when I try what you suggested - i.e. sudo apt-get install --reinstall postgresql-client-8.4
