Publish iCal calendars without .Mac
Authored by: mc717990 on Jun 15, '06 09:43:53AM
There's another easy method too, which works with any standard web server with php support:

There's a plugin which lets you publish stuff from iCal. It's called calendars/publish.ical.php and is included by default with this application.

yes, PHPiCalendar, without webdav :-)

I strongly support PHPiCalendar, and it should be underlined that once installed on your ISP or own server, it will "look like" a webdav server to iCal, while *not* requiring webdav in any way. Very nifty PHP code :-)

BTW, if you need "more" than just publishing a number of calendars from ical, you then have WebCalendar that will allow you to edit right on the server from anywhere, and you still can subscribe to it from iCal afterwards.
The only issue with WebCalendar is that contrary to PHPiCalendar, it won't digest iCal publishings automatically (it has a nice GUI to transfer iCal files manually, so that's OK for displacing an iCal calendar, but not at all for daily updates)
To some extent I wonder whether this is not an issue from iCal (not really being intended a collaborative, group calendar application)

I daily use both of them: PHPiCalendar to see a series of "home-created" schedules from everywhere, and WebCalendar to send back home events I create on my work PC.
When at home iCal sees all, when at work I get all in two tabs on Firefox (PHPiCal + WebCal)
