horde problems

I'm installing horde for the first time.  When I go to "http://localhost/horde" is does not ask me for my user name and pass. instead  it takes me straight to the index page. i have changed some of the error_log info so it is not displayed and logs it, but before i did that in the left hand conner of the browser it said "Last login:never".  listed below is some of my test info and some error messages. also i like to know where i could find better documenation on horde, imp, pear, etc.....

As I may suppose you haven't followed installation recommentations of horde.
Please read: /var/www/localhost/htdocs/horde/docs/INSTALL
And do step-by-step installation as described

You may find there:
5. Configure Horde::

     cd config/
     for f in *.dist; do cp $f `basename $f .dist`; done

i did follow the instructions  

cd config
for f in *.dist; do cp $f `basename $f .dist`; done

 also the docs in gentoo are in this dir /usr/share/doc/horde-3.1.1 after the emerge. the problem still exists.

Sorry, I've missed you have a lot of plug-in applications.
The real problem is absence: '/var/www/localhost/htdocs/horde/config/../mimp/config/conf.php'
I have working Horde + IMP (I just followed all instruction and there where no problems)
there is no horde/mimp subfolder in my installation.
May be you have /var/www/localhost/htdocs/horde/mimp/docs/ folder with specific installation instructions.

I recommend you install applicaitons one-by-one.
First - horde (without any app), than configure and test it, then IMP, than configure and test it, etc.
When problem will appear, you will know in what application.

Information from horde.org and from docs/ subfolders was enough for me as administrator and user
What is pear?
PEAR is a code repository for PHP extensions and PHP library code
similar to TeX's CTAN and Perl's CPAN.

The intention behind PEAR is to provide a means for library code
authors to organize their code in a defined way shared by other
developers, and to give the PHP community a single source for such
code.

Documentation for PEAR can be found at http://pear.php.net/manual/

ok, i went back and deleted all directories and started over like you said to do, installing one package at a time. I guess i was having php and config/config.php issue of some kind. it would not write to the settings to the config.php. I was sure glad for the code generator at the bottom. I would to thank you for all you help.
