ownCloud

Synchronize ownCloud contacts, events and tasks with your Android device using DAVdroid!

ownCloud is a PHP-based file sync and share solution. It can be extended with so-called apps:

  • Contacts provides contacts management and CardDAV support,
  • Calendar provides calendar management and CalDAV support,
  • Tasks provides task management and CalDAV support.

DAVdroid setup

To use both CalDAV and CardDAV in the same account and just using the host name as URL, configure well-known URLs (recommended).

OwnCloud 9:
CalDAV/CardDAV path: /remote.php/dav/ (e.g. https://server.example/owncloud/remote.php/dav/)

OwnCloud 8 and below:
CalDAV path: /remote.php/caldav/ (e.g. https://server.example/owncloud/remote.php/caldav/)
CardDAV path: /remote.php/carddav/

Contact group method: groups are per-contact categories

User name and password: same as in ownCloud
(LDAP authentication may cause problems with certain OwnCloud apps)

Troubleshooting

Most problems can be fixed by upgrading to the newest OwnCloud version (don't forget to update the Contacts, Calendar and Task app, too).
