    sync Zarafa with a web php calendar

    Hi,
    I'm new with Zarafa!
    I need to sync Zarafa with an external calendar (develop with php/mysql).
    Zarafa only have to show the entries from the 'external calendar': no edit/cancel or any operation, only to show.

    The question is: what is the way to sync Zarafa with own entries? Do you have any suggestion?

    Hi Ilandi,

    can the external calendar be exported as an ics file? If so, then the easiest apprach to import this calendar in regular intervals via curl (). During this import all changes inside of the Zarafa calendar will be overwritten.

    Thank you for your reply,
    It can be a solution, but the 'overwrite' is not good!
    The user can use the Zarafa calendar for private use too.
    I try to explain:
    The user can use Zarafa for private use (usually), at same time they use a 'management software with php calendar' for work use where they take appointment with them client. So the 'work calendar' must be visible on Zarafa as well as them private appointment, but private appointments must not be visible on the 'php calendar'.

    Now, I don't know Zarafa how works, but... it could be a solution if Zarafa manages multiple calendars at the same time on a single 'screen'.
    So in Zarafa I've 'private appointment' and 'works appointment': can the ics import put only in 'works appointment'? (without overwrite the 'private appointment')

    Yes, you could use with multiple calendars in Zarafa and have the WebApp do an overlay of those.

    Thank you fbartels, I've import ics into zarafa.
    It can be a solution for us, but the best way is if we find a way to 'append' and not 'overwrite'.
    The 'problem' is that in future we could have 'ics' files too big, so we have to 'extract a range of dates', and it is not in 'real time'.

    is there a way to append single appointment?

    Hi Ilandi,

    there are of course multiple ways for this, although there are no ready to run solutions for this. One way would of course be to implement a caldav client in your current setup to update and not overwrite the existing calendar. Also there is python-zarafa which makes if easier to interact with Zarafa data from python scripts. For python-zarafa there is already a little sample script to import appointments:
