This page, and related sub-pages, give details of the configuration of DAViCal itself. If you haven't yet got Apache, PHP and PostgreSQL working correctly to get DAViCal operating in a basic manner then you need to sort those issues out first. Take a look at the Apache Config, PHP Config and PostgreSQL Config pages.
The configuration file for DAViCal is looked for in several places, but the best choice is probably
/etc/davical/config.php if you only want to run a single DAViCal instance.
If you want to do something different, DAViCal searches first for a number of absolute paths, and then for some relative paths, in the following order:
Absolute paths searched for DAViCal's configuration file:
Relative (to DAViCal's index.php) paths searched for the configuration file:
Make sure config.php is readable for your webserver!
Configuration is PHP Code
The DAViCal configuration file is a piece of PHP code which is included very early in the processing of each page. If that does not exist, you'll get a nice error page telling you what to put in it. If the file exists but is not readable, it will be silently ignored.
If the file has a PHP syntax error you will have problems! Make sure all assignments are enclosed in quotes (or are numbers) and that each statement is correctly ended with a semicolon.
