Dear list members,


As I'm new to this list I'm sure that somebody knows an answer to my

I'm sure it's a rookie issue.


I'm continuously receiving the same error connecting to horde.


A fatal error has occurred:

Unable to connect to SQL server.

[line 118 of /repository/fs001/oridir/horde-2.2/lib/Auth/sql.php]

Details have been logged for the administrator.

// $conf['auth']['params'] = array('phptype' => 'sql',

$conf['auth']['params'] = array('phptype' => 'mysql',

                                'hostspec' => 'xxxxx.xxx.com',

                                'username' => 'horde',

                                'password' => 'xxxxxxx',

                                'database' => 'horde',

                                'table' => 'horde_users');



Thanks for your help,
