Overview

Warning:

cPanel Support does not provide assistance with the instructions in this article.

This article provides instructions for how to set up cPanel calendars and contacts on an Apple® desktop and mobile device operating system.

You can find your calendar (CalDAV) and contacts (CardDAV) setup information in cPanel's Calendars and Contacts interface (Home >> Email >> Calendars and Contacts). For example:

  • Serverexample.com:2080
  • User Name example or user@example.com

  • Password12345luggage

  • Description My Calendars

Important:

  • We recommend you use secure HTTP for your connection.
  • If your server uses a self-signed certificate, your application will prompt you with the message Cannot Verify Server Identity. Tap Continue to complete the set up process.

Notes:

  • cPanel's Calendars and Contacts feature does not function with the iOS Reminder application if your server uses a self-signed SSL certificate, and does not support Horde's Free/Busy system for third-party applications.
  • In cPanel & WHM version 54 and earlier, this is the Calendars and Contacts Client Configuration feature.

Set up calendar and contact applications

You must add port 2080 at the end of the server's hostname for the setup to work correctly. For example, example.com:2080.

Important:

We have only tested these steps on Apple®-distributed products. These clients natively support CalDAV and CardDAV. If you use other calendar or contacts applications that support these protocols, you may be able to access your calendars and contacts from those applications. Your application must support the CalDAV and CardDAV protocols.

Access your application's configuration interface.

Perform the necessary steps to access the calendars (CalDav) and contacts (CardDav) account configuration interface for your application. These steps vary between applications. For more information, read your application's documentation.
