I set up DAViCal on Debian.   It syncs with my android phone, but I had to buy 
an inexpensive sync ap for the phone.   Setup was fairly straightforward with 
postgresql and apache.  (I even migrated from my home server to a cloud 

My biggest issue was my unfamiliarity with postgresql.  THere are lots of docs 
on line to set it up, and I made some notes for myself which I would be happy 
to share.

Good luck!
