Thanks for your reply and ideas Michael,

I already had something like that in mind. As I had specified in the 

     'params' => array(
         'phptype' => 'mysql',
         'hostspec' => 'localhost',

and if I look at the error:

Nov 30 09:45:04 cx20 HORDE[28207]: [passwd] Could not instantiate PDO. 
PDOException: SQLSTATE[HY000] [1045] Access denied for user 
'dbuser'@'' (using password: YES) [pid 28207 on line 129 of 

it there says '' instead of 'localhost'

the database user has granted access to 'localhost' and not

will have a look again tomorrow and report back ;)

thanks for your time & input
