Hi Beech:

Since I've never gotten horde 3 to fully work yet, I suppose I could give
horde4 a shot. I liked its potention and thought it would be useful to some
of our users. I re-installed horde-3 3 or 4 times and always got stopped
when it would only loads the Welcome to Horde page requesting a login. I
followed the instructions carefully AFAIK. Login failed every time even
though MySQL backend and the horde conf.php files contained the login.

You certainly have a lot of work in front of you on a rewrite of the ports
and look forward to when finished.

Good luck!

Happy trails,
Jack L. Stone
