Caldav carddav Bundles

Using CalDAV and CardDAV with Open-Xchange

Beginning with the 6.20.1 release, Open-Xchange provides interfaces to connect CalDAV- and CardDAV-clients. Please note that at first only MacOS X (beginning with version 10.6 "Snow Leopard") with its clients "iCal" and "Address Book" is supported. This will change later and support for other clients such as Thunderbird will be added.

Preparation

Please edit your file /etc/apache2/ox6.conf so that the existing configuration for ox as well as the new configuration for CalDAV and CardDav are placed inside a virtual host .

This is an example where MYSERVER.TLD is the domain-name of the ox-server:

  $ vi /etc/apache2/ox6.conf 
  NameVirtualHost *:80
  <VirtualHost *:80>
  ServerName dav.MYSERVER.TLD
   ErrorLog /tmp/dav.err.log
   TransferLog /tmp/dav.access.log
   <Proxy />
       Order allow,deny
       Allow from all
   </Proxy>
   ProxyPass / ajp://localhost:8009/servlet/dav/ smax=0 ttl=60 retry=5
  </VirtualHost>
  <VirtualHost *:80>
   ServerName MYSERVER.TLD
  <Location /ox6>
       # Expires (via ExpiresByType to override global settings)
       ExpiresByType image/gif "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType image/png "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType image/jpg "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType image/jpeg "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType text/css "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType text/html "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType text/xml "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType text/javascript "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType text/x-js "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresByType application/x-javascript "access plus 6 months"
       ExpiresDefault "access plus 6 months"
       Header append Cache-Control "private"
       Header unset Last-Modified
       Header unset Vary
       # Strip version
       RewriteEngine On
       RewriteRule v=\w+/(.+) $1 [L]
       # Turn off ETag
       Header unset ETag
       FileETag None
  </Location>
  <Location /ox6/ox.html>
       ExpiresByType text/html "now"
       ExpiresDefault "now"
       Header unset Last-Modified
       Header set Cache-Control "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0"
       # Turn off ETag
       Header unset ETag
       FileETag None
  </Location>
  <Location /ox6/index.html>
       ExpiresByType text/html "now"
       ExpiresDefault "now"
       Header unset Last-Modified
       Header set Cache-Control "no-store, no-cache, must-revalidate, post-check=0, pre-check=0"
       # Turn off ETag
       Header unset ETag
       FileETag None
  </Location>
  <Location /ajax>
  SetOutputFilter DEFLATE
  </Location>
  </VirtualHost>
