> Hi Guys,

> Fatal Error:
> Could not instantiate PDO. PDOException: SQLSTATE[28000] [1045]  
> Access denied for user 'hordemail'@'localhost' (using password: YES)
> In /usr/share/php/Horde/Db/Adapter/Pdo/Base.php on line 48
> In this installation, the DB is on a separate machine  
> (database.[mydomain].com) and for the life of me I can't find  
> where/how to configure that in the Horde config.  Thus, when I run  
> the "final" installation step (webmail-install) I get the above  
> error. How do I specify the DB mySQL server as being "database" and  
> not "localhost"?
> TIA,
