CalDAV Application: OSX Calendar

This tutorial will show you how to connect the OSX Calendar app to your Roundcube calendar. The first step in setting up any third-party app to work with the Roundcube calendar is creating a CalDAV connection. If you haven't done it yet, this tutorial will guide you through the necessary steps.

Please note that this tutorial is a general guide. The CalDAV server on your host may require different settings. If the steps described below don't work for you, please contact your host's or company's tech support and ask them what settings you should use.

1. Add a calendar account

Open the Calendar app, click Calendar on the menu and then click Add Account.

2. Select account type

When asked about a calendar provider, select Other CalDAV Account and click Continue.

3. Type the calendar details

Set Account Type to Manual. Type the user name that you where given when you created the CalDAV connection in Roundcube. Type the password you chose when creating the connection. In Server Address, type the URL of the CalDAV connection (use the URL, not the Alternate URL.) Click Sign In.

This tutorial assumes that your calendar is available over SSL (the URL begins with https.) If your URL begins with http, you'll need to set the Account Type to Advanced, uncheck the Use SSL checkbox, set Server Path to "/" (without quotes,) and set Port to 80.

4. Done

If the connection was successful, you should see your Roundcube calendar on the sidebar and its events in the calendar grid.

5. Customize

If you'd like to customize the settings for your calendar, click on Calendar / Preferences. For example, you may want to choose a different interval for refreshing the calendar, so the events will be updated more frequently.
