Hey Jan, thank you for that.  That certainly was the obstacle.   
However, I have to say, I read and re-read the docs over several  
times, I didn't see that written anywhere.  I see the line that says:  
"You can't use the updated data with your old Horde version anymore.",  
but that does not mean "make sure you install your horde update in a  
fresh directory" (at least it didn't to me, unless I'm missing it  
somewhere else).  I just wonder if a quick line in the install or  
quick install section might make this clearer, such as "mv  
/var/www/horde /var/www/oldhorde" and then commence with the  
instruction.  Of course, that is just my two cents, but it might  
reduce a few cries for help in the future.

Thanks again, I'm up and running now.
