Thumbs up webdav calander server


Hi,

I have a webdav calender server setup.I have thunderbird email client and ligtning addon installed for the calender.

From my email client(thunderbird)i and all others can access the common webdav calender named calender.ics with username and password(all use same username and password)

Now as calender.ics is accessible to all they can add the events on it.Also they can delete it,i.e they can delete the events of others also.

Now can any one tell me,is it possible that user should be able to add the event but should not be able to delete it.In case it can be deleted,it should be deleted by the one who creates it.Just like sticky bit concept.

Ya i know one of the solution is it to mark it readonly in client itself,but i want the other solution(on server.

Or can i have multiple authentication(now have single for all) for all individuals separately(htpasswd).And if i can have multiple authentication will they be having access to there events or events of others also.

Hope i have mentioned my problem properly.


Regards,

Prayag

Google can point you to several webdav how-tos, like this one:

http://www.linux.org/docs/ldp/howto/...OWTO/x383.html

which cover things like the LIMIT tags, and UID settings.
