    I am unable to configure any of the settings in my WebCalendar installation.
    I could when I installed it, but no longer can.
    I am the admin user, so I should have permissions to configure anything, but even something as simple as changing the theme or colors does not work.
    When I try to alter any configuration/settings, I click save, then I get a white page of death (assuming this means a PHP error, but I do not see any error.
    I find nothing seemingly relevant in apache error.log. (tried grep -i calendar error.log)
    This is on Debian Wheezy.

    I see that settings are in the database, not any config file.
    Clearly, I'm writing to the DB when entering events (that works), but not saving configuration settings (I can edit the DB "by hand" so to speak, over ssh to the server, but not by the web interface).

    Okay, I went into the db, even, and did

    update webcal_config set cal_value="#FFFFC0" where cal_setting="TODAYCELLBG";

    and, indeed, I see

    select * from webcal_config where cal_setting="TODAYCELLBG";
    +-------------+-----------+
    | cal_setting | cal_value |
    +-------------+-----------+
    | TODAYCELLBG | #FFFFC0 |
    +-------------+-----------+

    But in the calendar, the current day cell is still grey, not yellow.
    So even manipulating settings in the DB isn't changing anything.
