« Running Wcald »

If you want webCal to send your user email reminders, you need to run the background daemon process wcald on your webserver. This process scans user calendars periodically and send email reminders when needed. To start this daemon process by hand, as root enter its absolute pathname at the shell prompt. For example,

      redhat7.2# /var/www/webcal/bin/wcald
You should arrange your system startup scripts to automatically start wcald at your webserver boot up time. There are many ways to achieve this. The standard method for doing this on a RedHat system is the following (Thanks to Dirk Elmendorf).
  • Edit the file wcald-redhat in the distribution, and copy it to /etc/init.d/wcald
  • Run
    redhat7.2# chkconfig --add wcald
    redhat7.2# chkconfig --level 2345 wcald on
