I have had this problem before - don't know why - but this is what I  
did to get around it.

You need to run the  database define stream that is appropriate for  
you DB backend

Then insert the  default horde sql definition in conf.php
$conf['sql']['persistent'] = true;
$conf['sql']['username'] = 'hordeusername- you must change this';
$conf['sql']['password'] = 'hordepassword-you must change this';
$conf['sql']['protocol'] = 'unix';
$conf['sql']['database'] = 'hordedatebasename - you must change this';
$conf['sql']['charset'] = 'iso-8859-1';
$conf['sql']['splitread'] = false;
$conf['sql']['phptype'] = 'mysql- or whatever you have ';

then insert the datatree def in conf.php
$conf['datatree']['params']['driverconfig'] = 'horde';
$conf['datatree']['driver'] = 'sql';
