[Davical-general] iOS, Thunderbird - issues

jontheil
Hi list,

I had it all working: Opereating system: FreeBSD-9.1-RELEASE, database server: PostgreSQL-9.2, calender server: davical-1.1.1. On my PC's: Windows and Mozilla Thunderbird. On my iPhone the built-in calendar configured for CalDAV. No problems at all.

Then one day my FreeBSD server decided to crash (rebooting forever) and I had to switch motherboard. Luckily, most of the data were intact on the disk systems and most services just ran as before. The only real problem was that my calendar system stopped working.

In fact, there were some error messages from the database server from the beginning, but they didn't indicate anything really bad.

Now I have this scenario:
I can use Thunderbird (indicates it is connected to the server), I can use the iPhone calendar. But somehow they don't store the data the same place as before.
In the administrative interface for davical, I can see my old calendar configured as "myusername/home". In fact, there is another "folder" named "calendar", but I have not used that for anything (intentionally).
The database server is a bit difficult to manage with my limited knowledge. I can just see in the log that it is responding with connections and disconnections both when I use Thunderbird and when i use the iPhone. I can't see the actual queries (guess that might be a configuration issue).

It seems that even if I set the CalDAV calender up on the iPhone with an address like "http://myserver.tld/davical/caldav.php/myusername/home" then after a while, it cuts away the "/home" part.

Could it bee that the phone actually uses "myusername" without anything more or maybe "myusername/calendar"? And if so, can anyone tell me how to copy all of my old data to the new location?

Any kind of hints will be greatly appreciated.

Regards,
Jon

Well, the proposed path mentioned may not be relevant. There are several "Principal collections" with paths like "/in/", "/out/" and "/home/". When enter the full address of the last one, I can download a calendar file and open it in e.g. Outlook. And the content looks exactly as my Thunderbird calendar. There are two extra collections, one of which has the path "/B5E84F45-7A95-44F6-9B8A-5E1BDF129FD1//" and a display name set to "CalDAV". When I open the downloaded file from that location, I get content like it is on the iPhone. And the display name is just like the name I entered for the calendar description of the iPhone calendar.

Jon,

This sounds very similar to the issue I just had after migrating to iOS 7: not seeing a collection with the right properties, iOS created a new calendar and reminders collection on the server, with pathnames that look like the one you show.

See the recent thread "iOS 7 fun" - Ján Máté provided a database operation to add the necessary supported-calendar-component-set property to existing collections to make them visible on the iPhone.

 Jim,

Thank you for answering me.

I will study the thread you are referring to. Hopefully, it can help me too.

After my server went down, I did a classical mistake: I tried to resolve a lot of different issues at the same time. Therefore, I am not sure exactly when the problem with davical appeared for the first time. But I am pretty sure it was before the update of iOS to ver. 7. In fact, I hoped that the update could solve the problem, but i did not.

So I will have a look at the other thread and report back if it can solve my calendar problem too.

Regards,
Jon
