horde/config/horde.php  or  horde/config/config.php (depending on your
version of horde)

Okay.  Edit the appropriate file, and setup the auth params something like:

$conf['auth']['driver'] = 'sql';
$conf['auth']['params'] = array();
$conf['auth']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['auth']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['auth']['params']['username'] = '******';    // see scripts/db/*.sql
$conf['auth']['params']['password'] = '******';    // see scripts/db/*.sql
$conf['auth']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['table'] = 'horde_users';

You will want to insert an username and password into horde_users for
your login.  Username should be ascii text, password should be md5.
Don't use the mysql password() function, but instead a real md5() function
such as php's md5().  For example, you can convert a known ascii password
to md5 with the following php script:

 echo md5('myPassword')

I think people have been able to use some admin tools (phpadmin or something
like that) also to create accounts in sql.

The password must be in md5() format.
