Hi lists,

I just upgraded horde and php on our server via portupgrade.
After the upgrade nothing was working anymore, it was impossible to login to 
horde anymore.
I noticed that my horde/imp configuration files had been replced by the default 
files. My old files had been saved as <filename>.bak.

Is this expected behaviour? Wouldn't it be better to leave the config files 
intact and install the new ones as <filename>.dist.new or something similar?
This way the application would still be working after the upgrade and i would 
have time to inspect the new default config files for changes without being 
disturbed by users complaining that they can't use their webmail interface anymore?


Kind regards,
