I've just had the database already loaded in mysql/mariadb. I then  
install composer horde on a php8 system. I don't recommend copying  
your previous conf.php files over. Upon first access of horde, you  
will go right into the configuration screen. From there, you just go  
to the Database tab and point it to your already-setup horde database.  
You will see on the Configuration screeen that schemas/tables need to  
be updated. Do the updates and make sure they run without error, then  
configure your authentication backend. I'm using imp.

I do have an issue with Turba. If anyone has attached a photo/picture  
into a contact, then you get an error if/when you try to modify that  
contact. The picture still shows, but you can't edit the contact as  
you get a php error. Trying to see where/how to submit that bug. Do I  
do it on the turba mailing list? I did that before for a Turba bug and  
nobody responded; however, I see that the issue I was having was  
recently fixed. So?
