Use Automator to help publish iCal calendars
Authored by: revolution1965 on Dec 13, '05 04:34:59AM

I don't know if things have changed since this hint was published, but i'm using iCal 2.0.3 and I simply go to publish, type in my web site ftp address like ftp://ftp.mysite.com and type in my username and password and iCal publishes my Calendar... via ftp... No need for Automator?

Use Automator to help publish iCal calendars

Yeah, 2.03 does seem to publish via ftp now. This has happened in the past. Hopefully Apple leaves this support in :-)

Use Automator to help publish iCal calendars
Authored by: catzforever on Apr 18, '06 11:13:23AM

Yes, I can publish directly via ftp from ical, but apparently can't subscribe to it afterwards using ical. Poitinng to the ics file on the server, I get this message when ical downloads the file:

Data downloaded from http://mydomain.org/ical/Test.ics is not valid.

Any idea why?

I have the same problem. When I logged into my server I noticed the .ics file that was published by ical is zero kb. I think iCal is publishing a blank file.

I am on my way to the Apple Genius bar to get a better answer.

I spent some time at the genius bar yesterday. None of the geniuses used the publish feature in iCal, but after some research they concluded FTP is NOT supported at this time.

The private server option is for a private webdav server.

I reported the success dialog that appears after "publishiing" to an ftp server as a bug.
