DAViCal is an application which runs on a server and hosts calenders with a graphical admininstratino interface but no graphical user interface. If you want to see your calender in the browser, you will need to get an extra program.
I mainly followed the installation instructions from the DAViCal website I already had all prerequisites installed, but the command to install them would look something like this on ubuntu:
$ sudo apt install apache2 libapache2-mod-php7.0 php7.0 php7.0-pgsql postgresql python-certbot-apache
php7.0-pgsql are needed so that
apache can communicate with
php can communicate with
postgresql, respectively. It might work to omit the
php version numbers. One could use
apt search php | grep apache to see which
php version is current.
$ sudo apt install davical $ sudo cp /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf.bkp $ echo -e "local \tdavical \tdavical_app \ttrust \nlocal \tdavical \tdavical_dba \ttrust" | sudo tee /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf $ sudo cat /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf.bkp | sudo tee -a /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf > /dev/null $ sudo chown postgres /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/environment /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hba.conf.bkp /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_ident.conf /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/postgresql.conf /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/postgresql.conf.bkp /etc/postgresql/9.5/main/start.conf
Then, I installed davical, backed up the PostgreSQL configuration file and with the next two commands I prepend the two lines
local daviacl davical_app test
local davical davical_dba trust.
(I tried to append these two lines, but as the installation instructions say, it doesn't work that way.)
davical is the database name
davical_dba are users (have a look at
/etc/postgresql/9.5/main/pg_hpa.conf - it is lightly documented).
The last command in the above section changes the owner of some files to the
$ sudo systemctl restart postgresql.service $ sudo su postgres -c /usr/share/davical/dba/create-database.sh $ sudo vim /etc/php/7.0/apache2/php.ini # include_path = ".:/usr/share/awl/inc" $ sudo vim /etc/apache2/apache2.conf # www.davical.org/install.php $ sudo vim /etc/davical/config.php # www.davical.org/install.php $ sudo certbot --apache -d wlankabel.at,www.wlankabel.at,bestoked.at,www.bestoked.at,davical.wlankabel.at,calender.wlankabel.at
Then, I restarted the PostgreSQL service (service = program running quietly in the background) so that the changed configuration file will take effect. And as the user
postgres I executed the
create-database.sh script which comes with the DAViCal installation.
The next step is to include AWL (Andrew's Web Libraries) such that PHP can read it because DAViCal depends on it.
