Using Webcal, Calendar not updating... Can't Post

I am using AWSD's webcal.... I have it configured properly to the best I can tell. When adding an event the data file does not get updated.

The site is hosted on an IIS box,

I am at a lost,

Please help,

well i downloaded that script, and it looks like it is pretty streight forward, you can see it working on my account just fine. the only thing that i needed to add to this


@datafiles = (
"/kunden/homepages/.../htdocs/winfinit/webcal/data.edit1.txt", #this line was added
"/kunden/homepages/.../htdocs/winfinit/webcal/data.edit2.txt" #and this line was added


reason why those lines needs to be there is because your script writing all data into edit1 or edit2, and by default those files are not data files, so you just have to include those.

Thank you winfinit,

Though I had everything configured correctly the problem I was having was that I didnt have the permissions set correctly on the DATA1 text file. I had it wide open for the IUSR_ account and thought that would be sufficient. Turns out I had to have full control set on the Everyone Group.

I had read in the instructions that the data1 file needed to have worldly access but I didnt know how to set that in windows, in UNIX you can just use chmod, but I couldnt find an equivalency for windows.
Thanks again,
