My co-workers and I are having problems Synching our Calendars. We have our .ics file on our web server. We are able to Subscribe to the Remote Calendar perfectly, however, whenever we go to Publish our Changes, it begins throwing errors. I am not sure on what to do from here.

"Component returned failure code"
"405: Method not allowed"

I know that our web server requires a secure connection (SSL).
I have checked the rights, temporarily, I have given FULL rights (R-W-E) to all users.

I hope that I have posted enough info. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Publishing a calendar uses the HTTP PUT method. This is part of the HTTP standard, but many servers are either configured to reject it with a 405 error, or unable to support it at all. Look at the server's logs to confirm that this is the cause. Check the server's configuration to enable PUT.

On Apache servers, the easiest way to enable HTTP PUT is to install or enable the entire DAV module, even though Calendar does not currently use any DAV features.
