DannyH Posted November 4, 2009 Report Share Posted November 4, 2009 Hi Guys, it’s been a while!! I was just wondering if anyone has been able to do the following on Uniform Server: (or might be able to help? Sorry for my lack of knowledge on this) I would like to use Mozilla Thunderbird Calendar “Lightning” to share calendars between users but as I understand this is mainly done using Linux Server Platforms This is what Mozilla say about it in the FAQ How can I publish my events on a remote server? You can create your calendar on a calendar server that supports CalDAV, or WCAP, or has a calendar data provider add-on.CalDAV, WCAP, and some add-on protocols permit a calendaring client such as Sunbird or Lightning to tell the server to modify individual events, and the servers prevent or detect overwriting changes by two people or programs. When you subscribe to a calendar using these methods, changes you make are saved back to the server one event or task at a time. You can also publish events from the calendar as a personal .ics file on an FTP server (Sunbird only) or a webDAV enabled web server. You can use the calendar to subscribe to these events as well. Since this method overwrites the entire file for each change, it is not for calendars modified by more than one person or program, nor for large calendars. How can I serve my shared calendars? One way is to store your calendar on a public calendar service. There are many; check with your email provider, or search the web. Some store only whole ics files modified by a single user, while others provide a service with a more robust calendaring protocol such as CalDAV (or WCAP), to better handle large calendars and changes by multiple users. To serve shared calendars from your own server machine, the best way is to install a service specifically designed to manage calendars, typically using a protocol such as CalDAV, or WCAP. Both open source and commercially supported calendar service software packages are available. If only one person or program will modify a small calendar, you can use a webDAV server. If you run your own web server, you can install mod_dav, a free Apache module that will turn your web server into a webDAV server. Instructions on how to set it up are on their website. Once you set up your webDAV server, you can publish your calendar to the site, then subscribe to it from any other Calendar. Automatically updating the calendar will give you a poor man's calendar server. Now I already run Uniform Server in production so if there is a way to active this or any help or assistance I would be greatly appreciated Regards Danny Quote Personal website Uniform Server - hMail Server - Joomla Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
