As discussed in the other thread that deals with this problem ("Horde
5.2.13 (final)"), the note that the configuration file needs updating
will disappear if you replace the third (or so) line of conf.php (old
version without the 3 lines mentioned above) which starts with "// $Id"
with the "ID line" from the newer version of conf.php.  But this only
suppresses the notification that an update of the configuration file is
required. So it's just a workaround, not a solution to the problem.
