Got WebDAV working, but not iCal
Authored by: foodragon on Sep 22, '02 04:18:20PM

Here's the problem I'm running into. When I try and publish to my local server I get an error stating that it couldn't be published. If I remove the http:// from the addres it looks like it publishes but when I check the DAVdoc folder there are no ics files, and upon checking even through the web via a broswer I get asked for the login and password, but there a no files in the folder. I'm assuming that WebDAV is working because I'm being asked for the login and password, but I could be wrong in my thinking. Any ideas?

That you are being asked for a password means that the directory is password protected, but not that WebDAV is working.

Make sure you're using this syntax to publish:

http://server.name.or.ip/dav

Don't specify a calendar name in that line or anything.

Other than that, I'm not sure what to say. You can check to see if WebDAV is working by trying to open it using something like Goliath (? I think that's the name? The WebDAV app?)

if your using OS X, connect using Finder -> GO -> connect to server...

make sure you can create folders, and rename them... this is important.. you could get some functionality and *think* webdav is working, but it may not be setup correctly... that would cause little problems like this.

I mounted the WebDAV share in the Finder .. and I can't add folders or files - what have I done wrong - how can I fix it?

I have the same problem here.
I ended up trying to make all dirs read and writable for everyone; but it still doesn't help:

"This access has been forbidden by server."

It would be nice if someone could say why this happens and how to prevent it!
Thanks
