Note: This is not an official Horde document. There is no write support in Horde 3.1/Kronolith 2.1
This document is intended to help administrators configure various parts of horde to link a calendar application with Kronolith. Please feel free to fill in any gaps or to clarify any existing information presented here.
In this document, we assume the following:
apt-get install php4-pear
Then to make sure pear is working:
You now need to install the pear HTTP_WebDAV_Server package
pear install HTTP_WebDAV_Server-beta
We found that Sunbird was taking roughly 20 seconds to download the ics file over webdav and that even downloading the file in a browser had the same lag. On investigation it turned out Kronolith was taking about 3 seconds to generate the file and Sunbird was waiting 15 seconds for the connection to close after downloading the file. Turning off KeepAlive in apache.conf (or setting it to a very small value) solved this issue. The default is 15 seconds.
Launch your Sunbird or Lightning application.
15/05/08: Starting with Horde Webmail 1.1 RC4, and as pointed out in that thread, this URL has to be changed like below:
It should ask you for user and password.
Then you should see you calendar and be able to edit events in both Sunbird/Lightning and Kronolith.
I can read my calendar perfectly but not publish. My apache returns a 404 or 403.
Then it should work according to this:
Check also, whether the Apache config allows the PUT method. You should have something similar to
<Directory /home/www/cal> <LimitExcept GET POST OPTIONS PROPFIND PUT> Order deny,allow deny from all </LimitExcept> </Directory>
where /home/www/cal would be the directory under which horde is installed, in your Apache config.
Free/busy Lightning extension is able to correctly read Horde freebusy file.
* 26/03/08: With Lightning v0.7 and Horde Webmail 1.1RC3, reading and publishing works correctly with a remote calendar as described on this page.
* This does work very nicely with sunbird 0.7 and kronolith 2.2, you must select ical (not webdav) but you do get two way editing.
* 2011-11-23: Using SME Server 8b6, with smeserver-kronolith and kronolith-h3 installed (kronolith v2.3), and the pear additions from above, works fine with Thunderbird 8.0 and Lightning 1.0 -- paul dot warren at wollemisystems dot com
I have found the Solution!
this link has helped me http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-ports-bugs/2011-July/214620.html
you have to install the pear-HTTP_WebDAV_Server
but it installed in the /usr/share/php dir
you must copy following files to your /usr/share/psa-pear folder, then you can write in your calendar form thunderbird or outlook
/HTTP/WebDAV/ to your psa-pear dir (i think you must copy more than this dir) but it works
Thunderbird ask you for a webdav authentification
