I am trying to access a public calendar on Exchange Server 2010 using php, but I cannot find the right URL.

Previously, when the server was running 2003, I could use the URL and then parse the data.

But when I try this in 2010 I am redirected to http:// I've tried updating my URL from public to owa, but it doesn't return anything.

Any idea how I can find the URL for this public calendar?

If you are going to be accessing it from PHP wouldn't you want to be using EWS? – Zoredache Aug 10 '10 at 23:28
:O It does indeed look like that is what I want to do, thanks a lot! – DanielGibbs Aug 10 '10 at 23:51

Given that Microsoft is de-emphasizing public folders some functionality was not updated for 2007/2010. For example in 2007 you can no longer access public folders using the Light version Outlook Web Access. I am not certain, but I suspect that the problem you are having is just another de-emphasized feature.

As I mentioned in a comment you can still access public folders from PHP using EWS. Here is a good article that I found useful in creating a PHP script to retrieve some data from the Exchange server.
