My project requires me to automatically create VM's for the user i.e in a program , I am using PHP as the front end so he can mention size of VM's etc , NOw how can I do it within a program so as to increase,decrease the size of the VM's. What API's should I use if any.
I am open to any VM creation tool available, sorry but I am new to virtualization programming . Thanks for your help.

I want to use PHP to send commands to the software so that it creates VM's

That sentence does not mean anything. You need to start at the beginning and design and build the part of the application that will actually build the VM. Only when you have that complete can you start to think about how you would connect it to PHP in order to modify some aspects of it.

That is the point, assuming that I created the VM using oracle VirtualBox or vmware how can I control The size of the application ,using Php commands to the tool which eventually manipulates the size of the VM

Well, thanks .I guess I'll use openstack to create images create a shell script and run it using php to expand size of image.
