I wanted to document my thoughts about the OwnCloud setup...so, here it is:
- Download the server from http://owncloud.org/install/
- Extract the archive on your server (needing Apache2, PHP5 and some more pretty common tool - usually everything you need is provided by your web hoster)
bzip2 -d owncloud-5*.bz2 tar xf owncloud-5*.tar
- Open the location with your browser: http://<MYHOST>/owncloud
- Configure your admin account
Since I don't want to spend money for a officially signed certificate, I prefer to create my own certificate. See Setup apache with a self-signed SSL/TLS-certificate for the how-to.
From now on you can, and should, use: https://<MYHOST>/owncloud

This is how it works:
- Go to your ownCloud calendar and get the calDAV-URL:
- Open Calendar, add a new CalDAV-account:
- Enable SSL, if you can:

- And yes, you shoud hurry if your site is public. First one entering his data owns the place!
- That does NOT mean, it's safer. It might be, but take a look at your Keychain and decide for yourself.
