One thing the run script does is sets PYTHONPATH prior to starting the service. There is an option to 'run' that emits the PYTHONPATH setting it uses, and this can be useful to manually run things using the same python environment that the run script uses.

export PYTHONPATH=`./run -p`

After doing the above, the following should work for starting the service (assuming you execute this from inside the CalendarServer directory)

bin/caldavd -f /path/to/caldavd.plist -t Combined

> The error I'm getting is a whole list of what twisted understands as arguments along with a final "unknown command: caldav". When I use the run script, it just works, but not when I try to fire up the server from the command line. I know I'm missing something obvious, just not sure what. The caldavd.plist file is correct as far as I can tell.
> I do have one other question though. When I start the server using the run script, one of the messages I get is "Using system version of twistd". Where would I find this system version and if I used the path to that in both the caldavd.plist file and the command line, would things "just work"?
