I changed the authentication to 'htpasswd_file'.

Now I am able to login as administrator and also as common user.

On the dashboard I am able to choose some Horde applications, e.g. 
addressbook. But, when I click on "calendar" I see for a short moment 
the calendar view and after that I get suddenly logged out. Again the 
message appears, that the session has timed out.

I tried many cookie settings, nothing helped.

This are my actual cookie and session settings in conf.php

$conf['session']['name'] = 'Horde';
$conf['session']['use_only_cookies'] = true;
$conf['session']['timeout'] = 0;
$conf['session']['cache_limiter'] = 'nocache';
$conf['session']['max_time'] = 72000;

$conf['cookie']['domain'] = $_SERVER['SERVER_NAME'];
$conf['cookie']['path'] = '/';

I also tried this:

$conf['cookie']['domain'] = '';
$conf['cookie']['path'] = '';

In the apache2 conf I set the server name to a fully qualified doman 
name, like "myserver.mydomain"

After each configuration change I deleted all cookies and browser cache 
in firefox.
