Write access on Internet 7 Years, 8 Months ago  
I have a technical problem, I hope someone can help me.

I have an ics file sitting on the net (i.e., www.kentative.com/calendar/kent.ics) I want to be able to write and read to that ics file. I have no problem reading that file, but I can't write to it. I tried editing the htaccess file but I am a noob at it. Please tell me it can be done. Thanks in advanced.

Kentative,

In order for rainlendar to update (write) a file hosted on a webserver, that server must have the webdav extension active and the file be hosted in a location that is configured to allow webdav updates..

Please see this link for more information about webdav -&gt; en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Webdav<br><br>Post edited by: ozgreg, at: 2006/12/20 17:38

Thanks for the reply,

I am looking into whether my webserver support webdav.

In the meantimes,
Is webdav a must for this purpose? How is my php code creating and modifying file? There must be a way for rainlendar to modify a file on the Internet if I have the right credentials. Right?

Your php code is executed on the server so it has a direct access to the server's files. The webdav extension is needed so that a client can upload files to the server.

Thanks for all the responses guys. Unfortunately, my webhost doesn't have the webdav extension. If you guys know of another alternative please let me know. Thank you.
