Use Automator to help publish iCal calendars
Authored by: houchin on Oct 24, '05 06:03:45AM
If you're webhost supports PHP, you can use phpicalendar (http://phpicalendar.net/) to simulate WebDAV access. It includes a php script that mimics the WebDAV response that iCal expects to get. I've used this on a couple different servers and it works great.

For that to work you unfortunately have to be able to turn off Safe Mode on the server.
If you - like me - don't have that option i recommend a site called http://www.icalx.com where you can publish your calendars to just like on a .mac account.
You can have both personal and public calendars.

If you have trouble remembering the address on the road you could just have a HTML redirects script on your own site (e.g. www.yoursite.com/calendar) that redirect you to your calendar on icalx.com

Just a bonus tip :o)

Or even create an icalx subdomain within your domain (e.g. icalx.example.org) with a redirect to your icalx site calendar page. :-)

Yea, iCalX already does this, and works quite well. Another site that does free WebDAV is sharemation.com, which I would use if iCalX didn't already work so well. Sharemation will allow calendar sharing, but not remote HTML calendar viewing. And the Sharemation trash needs to be manually emptied ocassionally too.

You can also try publishing to http://ifreebusy.com It not only hosts ical files, it will convert to/from freebusy format, so that you can share calendar information with users on MS Outlook.
