Horde or silkymail?

Horde itself should not touch your web server in any way.  It should
not cause any problems like you are saying.  Silkymail on the other
hand is a different issue.

Your existing apache processes won't terminate.  Kill them, or reboot, or
something to get rid of them.

See my previous posting for how to kill off the processes after this
point, and clean up any lock/state/cache files.

You've got a core dump.  Find out why and fix it.  Try going general apache
debugging like "apachectl configtest" and so on.  Ask for help on an apache
mailing list or from your vendor since this is not Horde related.

That is a bad sign.

Find out which file it is using.  Sync the two if needed.  Or fix your 
apache config.  Sounds like it installed two apaches, in two different
locations, and they are probably stomping on each other.  In any case
not a Horde problem.  You really need to seek help elsewhere.
