>From web page when I add a member to the list, a file get
created in /mailman/data called pending.subscriber.db or
something like that,
UID is Apache and GID is mailman.
But when the subscription e-mail goes out to the member, it
contains few lines of error and at the end of the mail say
something about the .db permission denied
with flag "w" I assume it means write.
debugging of this message tells me that the pending file
with UID of Apache is not editable by the script,
To prove that the message is telling me the truth I change
the UID of the pending subscribers to mailman and let
qrunner to do it's job again.
This time subscription e-mail goes out to the member without
Do you know where is wrong?
I run check_perms and tells me no problem.
The obvious logic is that the pending subscriber file is
created by Apache in the first place, when entering e-mail
address and password and click on subscribe.
But I can't understand why mailman is not taking back the
ownership of the pending data file.
Please let me know if there is anything else I should check.
