With Horde comes a utility 'horde-set-perms', that is supposed to set  
the file permissions correct. For me it didn't work, so I set the  
permissions manually:

   find /srv/www/htdocs/horde -exec chown root:www {} \;
   find /srv/www/htdocs/horde -type f -exec chmod 640 {} \;
   find /srv/www/htdocs/horde -type d -exec chmod 750 {} \;

The above changes ownership of all files and folders to root:www and  
then sets permission R/W for root and R/O for the group to which the  
user running the webserver. This is too strict for some files that  
need to be written by the webserver, so we'll change the ownership for  

   chown wwwrun:www /srv/www/htdocs/horde/config/conf.*php  
   chown wwwrun:www /srv/www/htdocs/horde/static /srv/www/htdocs/horde/cache
