Mail Man Question

When a user tries to get to their mailman listinfo forexample, they get the below error...

Any thoughts? I am sure it something simple I have missed.

Hey John,

How are you trying to get to the GUI? It is only expected to work through domains that don't impose SuExec (so, ones that aren't setup by Virtualmin or ones that you've modified manually to allow Mailman to run without SuExec).

The problem is that Mailman can't run under suexec (and it doesn't live in the docroot, so even if it could, it would still fail). The solution is to have Mailman live inside of a location that does not impose SuExec restrictions. We haven't quite gotten that automated yet...the new version of the module just released yesterday is part of the solution to that problem, though. It'll be handled correctly pretty soon.

As soon as I've got all of the bits and pieces actually working, I'll post docs for how to make it spin. I'll try to get it figured out this weekend.

I've noticed a few others talk about this but I can't see a fix.

How do I make listinfo.cgi show all lists. At the moment it breaks with invalid url.

it works if I specify the lists' name after

this also happens with admin.cgi..

I thought it was fixed long ago. Shows what I know. ;-)

What problem are you seeing?

Well it is amazing what an apache/mailman restart will do.
Before, when a user went to the general information page about a list, they got a 500 error.
Now, it just works.
Thanks for fixing this long bad.
