Just after login, I get the following error:

A fatal error has occurred:
Required 'phptype' not specified in authentication configuration.
[line 97 of /var/www/zerocalm.com/htdocs/horde/lib/Auth/sql.php]
Details have been logged for the administrator.

The last piece of help given to me in the IRC channel was that i should post the  $conf['auth'] section of your conf.php to the mailing lists but i dunno where conf.php is and find doesn't produce it.  I am guessing they meant horde.php.

So here it goes:

 ** Horde Authentication
 $conf['auth']['driver'] = 'sql';
 $conf['auth']['params'] = array();
 Additional Relevant Lines:
 $conf['prefs']['driver'] = 'sql';
 $conf['prefs']['params'] = array();
 $conf['prefs']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
 $conf['prefs']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
 $conf['prefs']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
 $conf['prefs']['params']['password'] = 'mypass';
 $conf['prefs']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
 $conf['prefs']['params']['table'] = 'horde_prefs';
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params'] = array();
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params']['password'] = 'mypass';
 $conf['sessionhandler']['params']['database'] = 'horde';

Any help that you can provide is appreciated.
