cPanel Calendars and Contacts – CardDAV/CalDAV

CardDAV is designed to allow end users to access and share the contact information/data on a server. Which is an address book client/server protocol, also the CalDAV is a protocol to allowing to access the scheduling information/data on a server.

    Any advice on what to do if the verification fails on an iOS device? The same server details are working fine on two iMacs but the iPhone setup fails at the verification stage. I’ve tried deleting the failed account and restarting the phone, then re-entering but still no dice.
