I’m looking for a free/libre calendar server to run on a GNU/Linux server.
It needs to have CalDAV connectivity, so that I can use Evolution, Sunbird or Thunderbird/Lightning as my only client. Ideally, it will also have a Web interface for both administration and calendar viewing, exports to iCal (.ics) files, supports iMIP, and offers Atom/RSS feeds of calendar items.
Here’s what I’ve found so far. If you know of others, please leave a comment.
There’s also a list at CalConnect’s CalDAV Servers
|Name||WebUI||Export iCal (.ics)||CalDAV|
|Zimbra||Yes, but..||Yes||Yes||Yes||No||Outlook only|
|EGroupware Community Version|
|Darwin Calendar Server|
The other calendars I’ve been trying are WordPress plugins. There is much promise in their description blurbs, but so far I’ve rejected most:
|Name||Export iCal (.ics)||CalDAV||Notes|
|Calendar JCM||Rejected: no longer supported|
|Event Calendar / Scheduler||Rejected: missing .php modules when running|
|The Events Calendar||Rejected|
|WP Events Calendar||Yes, with iCal for Events Calendar plugin||No||No||Works|
|CalPress Pro||?||?||?||?||This is a commercial plugin;|

I’ll be writing a review of Zimbra Open Source Edition soon, detailing some of my experiences…
