Perhaps what you're after is more like this (in your config/horde.php):

$conf['auth']['driver'] = 'sql';
$conf['auth']['params'] = array();
$conf['auth']['params']['phptype'] = 'mysql';
$conf['auth']['params']['hostspec'] = 'localhost';
$conf['auth']['params']['username'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['password'] = 'mypass';
$conf['auth']['params']['database'] = 'horde';
$conf['auth']['params']['table'] = 'horde_users';

Just as an aside, the people on the IRC channel are usually very busy and can
often only help to a certain point. Keep in mind that this is a volunteer
project and you can't expect people to drop everything to help you. (that's why
installation help questions are often better directed to the horde mailing list
where people can reply when they have time).
