 In Japanese, there's a poem that uses each letter of the phonetic alphabet (kana) exactly once, that begins with "iloha". Like the English counter-part, ABC, it is also used to mean "the beginning" or "the basics". With IlohaMail, it symbolizes ease of use and friendliness, as well as it's Japanese origins.

absolute paths in .htaccess files

The DOCROOT has changed on the new server. If you are including absoulte path information in a .htaccess file for something like the location of a personal .htpasswd file simply prepend /var/www/html/ to the /htdocs path.

example:

/var/www/html/htdocs/u/myname/mydirectory/.htpasswd

The php generated views and directly loading the ics files works, but publishing does not. The publish mechanism is through WebDAV, so its likely a separate problem.

It looks like the department calendar is no longer working. Also, subscriptions to and publication of calendars (e.g. through iCal) is not working. It seems that the file or directory permissions (or ownership) have changed.

Changes to be aware of

cgi and paths

/usr/staff is no longer needed. Applications will be found in their more traditional locations, usually /usr/bin. To ease transition there are some symlinks so that most cgi that worked on the old server will continue to work on the new server. You should inspect your cgi code for things like the following:

#!/cgi-bin/perl or #!/usr/staff/bin/perl

and change to

#!/usr/bin/perl
