I don't get it to work. Now I spent three days for that.

I changed the configuration in horde/config/conf.php

$conf['session']['use_only_cookies'] = false;

The cookie definitions should now not be necessary, but I changed it to

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

Then I changed the serverName in /etc/apache2/default_server.conf to 

ServerName localhost
ServerAdmin root at localhost

I deleted all session files

rm /var/lib/php7/*

Then I restarted the web server

rcapache2 restart

After loading firefox, I deleted cookies and cache

Then I called http://localhost/horde

The login page appears and I logged in as admin

I am able to login.

After click on "calendar" I can see for a moment the calendar view and 
then I get logged out.

I get the message, that the session has timed out.

BTW: I deleted all calendar events in the database.

Please, please help !
