Hi,

Anyone know of a good PHP/MySQL web-based calendaring application?
Willing to spend money, just looking for something solid and reliable.

Links to things will do just fine.
Thanks, Ben.

Hi Drift3r,
Many thanks for those links, that does look good.

Hello drew22,
To answer your question - I am after something that is "more of a group calendar type thing with repeating events, public/private events, combined views etc,". I am absolutely after something like that.

Thanks, Ben.

bcops,

check out:

http://www.hotscripts.com/PHP/Scripts_and_Programs/Calendars/index.html

and

http://www.k5n.us/webcalendar.php
http://www.k5n.us/webcalendar.php?topic=Competitors

A while back I checked  webcalendar ( http://www.k5n.us/webcalendar.php ) , full-featured group calendar, but it really didn't have any template system--html was embedded all over the application.  
 I wanted a group calendar app with 100% template controlled pages -- no themes, blocks or whatever -- so I developed my own.  Each calendar view has its own full page template separate from the script that calls it.

ancient demo:
http://www.calendarserve.com/demo/x-cal-group/month.php?cid=acme&uid=2&d=20030801

login  as any user:
    username:  first initial + lastname
    password: secret

(ex. Leo Davidson: username: ldavidson  password: secret)

view different user calendars by selecting name from pull-down menu

There's no design or theme to the calendar views because you create your own.  Click on the "show template links" to view actual full-page html templates.   I applied the Clearsilver http://www.clearsilver.net/docs/apples_to_oranges.hdf template concept to php. what else... supports multiple, independent group calendars, each with its own MySQL database
