For production use you should point the document root to some place outside 
of the server distribution. On OS X we default that in caldavd.plist to 
/Library/CalendarServer/Documents, which follows the convention used by the 
standard web server install.

You will probably also want to use the -i option on the run script to 
install the server components in their usual 'system' location rather than 
running it from the distribution directory. That will give you the option 
of having a running production server installation whilst still being able 
to work on newer version in the distribution directory.
