       kopano-ical.cfg - The Kopano iCal/CalDAV gateway configuration file




       The ical.cfg is a configuration file for the Kopano iCal/CalDAV Gateway.  ical.cfg
       contains instructions for the software to set up the logging system and to enable or
       disable the normal or SSL part of the service.


       The file consists of one big section, but parameters can be grouped by functionality.

       The parameters are written in the form:

       name = value

       The file is line-based. Each newline-terminated line represents either a comment, nothing,
       a parameter or a directive. A line beginning with `#' is considered a comment, and will be
       ignored by Kopano. Parameter names are case sensitive. Lines beginning with `!' are

       Directives are written in the form:

       !directive [argument(s)]

       The following directives exist:

           Include and process argument

           Example: !include common.cfg


       A space-separated list of address:port specifiers for where the server should listen for
       HTTP/CalDAV connections. IPv6 addresses need to be enclosed in brackets (as in
       [2001:db8::1]:236), and the asterisk is the multi-protocol address wildcard.

       Default: *:8080

       A space-separated list of address:port spcifiers for implicit-SSL CalDAV/HTTPS
       connections, similar to ical_listen. Previous versions of ZCP/KC suggested port 8443.

       Default: (none)

       The http address of the storage server.

       Default: http://localhost:236/

       It is not advised to specify the UNIX socket here, but the http address instead. In
       default configuration the gateway will then be trusted by the storage server (as set in
       its local_admin_users configuration setting). Unless is run as an untrusted user, by
       specifying the run_as_user, the gateway always authenticates users even if they provide no
       or wrong credentials!

       After correctly starting, the iCal/CalDAV gateway process will become this user, dropping
       root privileges. Note that the log file needs to be writeable by this user, and the
       directory too to create new logfiles after logrotation. This can also be achieved by
       setting the correct group and permissions.

       Default value is empty, not changing the user after starting.

       After correctly starting, the iCal/CalDAV gateway process will become this group, dropping
       root privileges.

       Default value is empty, not changing the group after starting.

       Write the process ID number to this file. This is used by the init.d script to correctly
       stop/restart the service.

       Default: /var/run/kopano/

       Change directory to this path when running in daemonize mode. When using the -F switch to
       run in the foreground the directory will not be changed.

       Default: /

       When a crash occurs or an assertion fails, a coredump file can be generated by the system
       for use with a crash report. For details, see the kopano-coredump(5) manpage.

       Default: systemdefault

       You can change the process model between fork and thread. The forked model uses somewhat
       more resources, but if a crash is triggered, this will only affect one user. In the
       threaded model, a crash means all users are affected, and will not be able to use the

       Default: thread

       The iCal/CalDAV gateway will use this file as private key for SSL TLS. This file can be
       created with: openssl genrsa -out /etc/kopano/ical/privkey.pem 2048.

       Default: /etc/kopano/ical/privkey.pem

       The iCal/CalDAV gateway will use this file as certificate for SSL TLS. A self-signed
       certificate can be created with: openssl req -new -x509 -key /etc/kopano/ical/privkey.pem
       -out /etc/kopano/ical/cert.pem -days 1095.

       Default: /etc/kopano/ical/cert.pem

       Enable client certificate verification with value yes. All other values disable the

       Default: no

       The file to verify the clients certificates with.

       Default: value not set.

       The path with the files to verify the clients certificates with.

       Default: value not set.

       A space-separated list of disabled or enabled protocol names. Supported protocol names
       depend on the system's SSL library; depending on version, one or more of the following are
       available: TLSv1.3, TLSv1.2, TLSv1.1, SSLv3, SSLv2. To disable a protocol, prefix the name
       with an exclamation mark.

       Default: !SSLv2 !SSLv3 !TLSv1 !TLSv1.1

       A colon-separated list of disabled or enabled SSL/TLS ciphers. Supported cipher names
       depend on the system's SSL library, and are generally plentiful. To disable a cipher or
       cipher group, prefix the name with a minus or exclamation mark. Details and meaning of the
       syntax are described in ciphers(1).


       In SSLv3 and newer, the server side gets to make the ultimate cipher pick out of the set
       that both ends support. In doing so, it can either use the client preference list, or, if
       this directive is set to "yes", its own list (as determined by ssl_cipher).

       Default: yes

       ECDH curves to use for SSL

       Default: X25519:P-521:P-384:P-256

       The method which should be used for logging. Valid values are:

       syslog Use the syslog service. Messages will be sent using the "mail" facility tag. See
              also journald.conf(5) or syslog.conf(5).

       file   Log to a file. The filename will be specified in log_file.

       auto   Autoselect mode: If log_file is set, that will be used.  Else, syslog will be used
              if it looks like it is available.  Else, stderr.

       Default: auto

       When logging to a file, specify the filename in this parameter. Use - (minus sign) for
       stderr output.

       Default: -

       The level of output for logging in the range from 0 to 6. "0" means no logging, "1" for
       critical messages only, "2" for error or worse, "3" for warning or worse, "4" for notice
       or worse, "5" for info or worse, "6" debug.

       Default: 3

       Specify whether to prefix each log line with a timestamp in 'file' logging mode.

       Default: 1

       Buffer logging in what sized blocks. The special value 0 selects line buffering.

       Default: 0

       Enable the ical GET method to download an entire calendar. When set to 'yes', the GET
       method is enabled and allowed. If not, then calendars can only be retrieved with the
       CalDAV PROPFIND method, which is much more efficient. This option allows you to force the
       use of CalDAV which lowers load on your server.


       The following options are reloadable by sending the kopano-ical process a HUP signal:
