[horde] Problem logging into Horde 2.0

I just recently installed Horde 2.0 and am having a difficult time (It's
driving me bonkers!) logging into it. Whenever I attempt to log in with the
specified username/pass in the horde.php config I get sent back to the login
screen, and the following error shows up in horde.log:

Dec 09 15:41:42 HORDE [error] [horde] FAILED LOGIN for horde []
to Horde [on line 43 of "/home/httpd/html/horde/login.php

I am quite confused as to why it would give me this error... The following
is what's in my horde.php config, not in any particular order:

$conf['auth']['driver'] = 'sql';

$conf['prefs']['driver'] = 'sql';

$conf['sql']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['sql']['protocol'] = 'tcp';
$conf['sql']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['sql']['username'] = 'horde';
$conf['sql']['password'] = 'horde';
$conf['sql']['database'] = 'horde';

$conf['auth']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['auth']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['auth']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
// $conf['auth']['params']['password'] = '*****';
$conf['auth']['params']['password'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['table'] = 'horde_prefs';

$conf['prefs']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['prefs']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['prefs']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
// $conf['prefs']['params']['password'] = '*****';
$conf['prefs']['params']['password'] = 'horde';
$conf['prefs']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
$conf['prefs']['params']['table'] = 'horde_prefs';

These are all configurations I have changed/added with the best of my
ability (Read: newbie), I also saw someone on the mailing list say they
fixed alot of problems with logging in by adding the 'sql' lines in there,
so I tossed them in to try, still didn't help...

I have already done 'mysql --user=root --password=passwordhere <
mysql_create.sql' without a problem, am able to log into mySQL without a
problem as the new user, it created the tables as it's supposed to just

Anyone have any ideas?

I eagerly await your replies!
