[horde] CVS: You must configure a DataTree backendto use Shares.

I had the same problems you did.

I fixed it with Bill's input below.  It would be nice to know why it works
with any other database name/user/pw that horde, but oh well.  

Do you use MySQL, If so did you have problems creating the table

I also had the frame issue, that I got to by editing the conf.php file and

$conf ['menu']['links']['always'] = true;

The other issue was to manually load the URL 

I got the config screen and all sort of worked.  

After proving that I could get real screens up I blew the whole thing away
and started over.  It then worked just like the manual, I'm still a bit
confused over that.

If you want I'll keep you posted on my progress

Ok, but now I still don't have a frame on the left (it's blank) and no 
config-interface :(
Any other hints?

Thanks, Chris
