I am trying to put a new calendar up on my website. the new calendar is in Sunfire 0.3a2 .  When creating the calendar I choose "Remote", and from there I'm lost.  The next dialog box asks to choose a WebDav or CalDAV format and the location.  I am not familar with WebDav or CalDAV at all.  All I know is that I have a website that I publish to via frontpage.  would anyone be able to tell me the steps to publishing this calendar?  Are those formats ones which have to be on the host server?  I wouldn't know if my service has it.  If they don't, does anyone know of any alternatives? I need to get this calendar up ASAP.

Hi fernbuck,

WebDAV stands for "Web-based Distributed Authoring and Versioning". It is a set of extensions to the HTTP protocol which allows users to collaboratively edit and manage files on remote web servers.

If you just want to upload events, then FTP will do the trick, but if you want to share the calendar then you need WebDAV technology...

If you have a server that runs Apache then you can install mod_dav {http://www.webdav.org/mod_dav} which is a free module for Apache, but if you're with a shared hosting company, you are probably not allowed to install your own software...

There are a few web-based event calendars on the net... You could check out EasyPHPCalendar. It's easy enough to use and looks really nice...

I don't know anything about this host, but they seem to support WebDAV:
http://www.a2hosting.com/webdav_hosting.php

1&1 also seem to support it. They have pretty cheap packages, but their support isn't the best...

Hello fernbuck,

You can check to see if your host has the Apache mod_dav installed by sticking a .php file with the following contents on your server somewhere:

<?php
phpinfo();
?>

If your host has it installed, it would appear in the 'Loaded modules' section under Apache. Chances are they won't - it's pretty specific.

I think there's a Windows version of WebDAV too, but I don't have any idea about that.

If it's not installed, you'll be back to julian's suggestion of finding a different host. But heck - it's worth a try.
