On the upside, I was able to upgrade to the new version
www-apps/horde-3.0.4.  I can now see the menu and tabs.  I began to
setup the various configuration variables.  Then I get stopped by a DB

A fatal error has occurred
DB Error: connect failed

[line 1307 of
Details (also in Horde's logfile):

object(db_error)(8) {
    string(0) ""
		    string(24) "DB Error: connect failed"
		        string(85) " [nativecode=Access denied for user:

This is a fresh and clean mysql database.  I don't know a lot of sql,
but was able to setup the database with the prior horde version just
fine.  I attribute this to the quality instructions.  

If anyone could briefly walk me through the steps to wipe out the
current db and setup a new, working one to handle prefs and anything
else bast handled by mysql, it would be a huge help.  I'm just not DB
literate enough.
