Are you still having an issue with this..?
It's quite simple to set up.
In Server Admin, you need to activate a "Realm" for your site, and give permissions to a specific user, or group.
I would set up a directory like: calendars etc., and then create a Realm, with access to just you to start off with. Under Realms, make sure you have Read/Author permissions ticked.
Then give the full path in iCal, and it should work a treat.

Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2006 2:48 PM (in response to Michael Ojaste)I, too am trying to publish an iCan on the server.
Here is what I've done.
On the server side:
1. Created a folder called 'testcal' in my users' document folder on the server
2. Created a realm that points to this folder
3. Added myself as a user in this realm, with "Can Author" checked
4. WebDAV is checked in the "Options" for this domain
5. Saved changes, stopped server, and re-started web server.
On the iCal Side
1. Created a new calendar.
2. Choose publish on private server
3. Entered this URL:
(This URL path points to the testcal folder on the server, and defined by the realm)
4. Entered my username and password for the server
BUT I get this error message:
http://jeffrey@www/mydomain.com/Volumes/Data/818/jeffrey/Documents/testcal/dmcte st.ics is not a valid location for this request
Anyone have any ideas ?

Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2006 4:44 PM (in response to John H)ok
1. So I need to create a new domain called ical.
Your path /Library/Webserver/Documents obviously is the default Web folder for new domains or sites that you create.... can the folder be elsewhere like in a user's folder instead?
2. When I publish, what then is the correct domain to publish to?
http://ical/mydomain.com/Library/Webserver/Documents/iCal would really be a sub-domain, correct? so should I create a sub domain instead of a new site?
I don't have access to the Webserver folder from home... yet.. so I'll have to try this in the AM.. but thanks for your help.. I fell much closer..Quad 2.5, Mac OS X (10.4.6)
Currently Being ModeratedMay 7, 2006 5:15 PM (in response to Jeffrey Lee)Jeffery - as you can see I am the original poster so my knowledge is limited to what worked for me. I guess you can use your own folder location but you can see from the publishing address the default locations is assumed.
If you use the file structure I described you publish to
I suggest you get things working as I describe then try an alternate custom versionG5/dual 2.0, Mac OS X (10.4.5)
