Sorry for lack of info...Im probably in over my head.
I used svn checkout "svn.calendarserver.org/repository/calendarserver/CalendarServer/trunk" which should have pulled 3.0. CalDAV is working perfectly for multiple users and on both desktop and iphones. So i think i have it configured properly.
Also when i run the server (using ./run so i can trouble shoot) i see it "checking out" updated revisions.
I am temped to reinstall but the fact that iphones work perfectly makes me think its the setup with Address Book desktop client. Every time i configure the account, it just hangs until eventually it prompts with a message saying it can't find the settings. I read online about editing the .plist file for address book desktop. When i look at the file after failed setup, it appears that the server address gets screwed up. When i fix it to the right port and path it connects and syncs. But trying to add or modify i get

I did have to edit the .plist file on my computer because Addressbook desktop client kept screwing up the path. IPhone with OS 4 (deployed the config through iphone configuration utility) is working perfectly and AddressBook desktop client will sync with the data input by the iphone. Anything added or modified by Addressbook desktop client doesn't post to the server though (i checked in the data folder).
