  • caldav.example.com/davical/caldav.php/

If you want to sync a calendar that belongs to another user and that is not linked to your calendar home, enter the full path to the calendar.

Example

  • cal.example.com/caldav.php/someusername/somecalendarname/

You should always check Use SSL according to your server's configuration.
