i have been trying that as well now - however i am still not sure about the exact details and order.
delete the address book on Synology,
( The CardDav Server is creating one Addressbook per user - i am admin and therefore i cannot just delete the addressbook in question)
create a new empty address book,
I assume that this should be done on the phone as the Synology would also not allow me to do that.
And when we speak about phone do you mean in the contacts app or the DAVx5 ( the last one i tried with below result)
Here is what i have been doing:
deleting the contacts from phone again
deleting the contacts from CardDav Server
Attempting to import the contacts.vcf from phone into DAVx5 Account (Phone)
This did not work (no specific error - just cant be imported presented by Android)
deleted the DAVx5 addressbook on the phone via DAVx5 App
Attempting to create new Addressbook via DAVx5 in App - does not work with an error 403 Forbidden
Can you specify exactly where each action has to be performed ?
Thanks in Advance.
Ok never mind the above - the import that showed me not possible before worked now - the downloaded file was empty - i could retrieve it though. The issue was resolved exactly as you told me… I have to document that for myself in case that it will happen again.
Thanks a lot for the quick help and replies…
Really enjoying the app so far- keep up the good work.
Die Fehlermeldung weißt doch eindeutig auf einen internen Server-Fehler hin, deshalb würde ich auch dort beginnen und die Webserver- und Nextcloud Logdateien nach Hinweisen auf die Fehlerursache zu durchforsten
Recently, with DAVx (v3.3-gplay), each time i tried to synchronize with my calendar app “agenda business”, i had the following error :
“Server error HTTP 500”.
In the detailed error log i found :
“this recurrence rule does not generate any valid instances” (wich bring me here).
I tried the rfc2822’s solution (remove the “90 day” limit in the DAVx’s parameter, synchronize and put it again the “90 day” limit) and it worked : no more error !
@j-ed Ah, that worked indeed, I just pushed the red refresh button in the bottom-right corner.
Great, works for nextcloud, assuming that if I change the name of a shared calendar there, it doesn’t change it system wide. Zimbra doesn’t allow renaming of the base calendar it seems though (known “bug” on their side since almost a decade: https://bugzilla.zimbra.com/show_bug.cgi?id=31872).
The Problem (Challange) i have a old nextcloud-server and set up a new one - but can’t move the Adress from the old to the new.
so my idea was to edit each Contact i have an move it into the new Adressbook which then would nicely sync back with DAVx5 to the new Nextcloud.
Absolutely no problem exists to export an Nextcloud address book to an csv file and re-import it into a new server. I would recommend to go the easy way.
The same way exists on an Android phone if you e.g. use the Google Contacts app.
@blackdam Ah ok… because the calendar app shouldn’t allow such a condition and delete the whole event. Maybe you can create a report for Etar about that (when you reference this thread, they should have all necessary information)
