In cPanel & WHM version 80, we introduced the Calendar and Contacts Server (CCS) plugin. The CCS plugin allows your cPanel users to manage their CalDAV (calendar) and CardDAV (contacts) accounts from your cPanel & WHM server.
When you install this plugin, CCS becomes the main calendar and contacts tool. Your server keeps the information available in Horde. However, cPanel account and Webmail users will no longer be able to connect to the Horde calendar or address book.

Your cPanel users can now connect CCS to Roundcube, Horde, or other applications. For more information, read our How to Set Up Calendars and Contacts (https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/webmail/how-to-set-up-calendars-and-contacts/) documentation. Enter port 8443 when you set up the server name and port.

----------------------------------------------------------------




Warning:


The CCS plugin is EXPERIMENTAL. This plugin is unstable and can result in unintended consequences. Exercise caution when you enable this plugin. This features behavior may change in a future version.
This plugin is compatible with CentOS 7, CloudLinux 7, and Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.
This plugin is not compatible with CentOS 6, CloudLinux 6, Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6, and Amazon Linux.

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 might be able to access your calendars and contacts from those applications. Your application must support the CalDAV and CardDAV protocols.


1. Access your applications 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 applications documentation.
2. Enter your accounts information. Enter the following information:


Username Your cPanel account user or webmail user.

cPanel account user example
Webmail user [email protected]


Server The full URL to the users calendar or contacts.

Autodiscovery example.com
Non-Autodiscovery cPanel account user https://example.com:2080/rpc/principals/example
Non-Autodiscovery webmail user https://example.com:2080/rpc/principals/[email protected] Note:
If your application does not support Autodiscovery, use the non-autodiscovery URL.




Password The cPanel account or webmail users password. For example: 12345password

Remember:
You can access this information in cPanels Calendars and Contacts interface (cPanel >> Home >> Email >> Calendars and Contacts).


Roundcube 1.4 for desktop In cPanel & WHM version 88, we introduced Roundcube 1.4 to Webmail (https://docs.cpanel.net/webmail/the-webmail-interface). Roundcubes database stores the internal calendars data. You can also add a CalDAV calendar to Roundcube. This version of Roundcube includes a mobile-responsive theme. You can find instructions to set up a Horde calendar in Roundcube on mobile in the Roundcube 1.4 for mobile devices (https://docs.cpanel.net/knowledge-base/webmail/how-to-set-up-calendars-and-contacts/88/#roundcube-1-4-for-mobile-devices) section of this document.
