I've googled the archives and poked around as much as I could, but cannot find the answer to my problem, so I figured I'd post to the list to see if anyone had any ideas.
We had a very large number of moderation messages for one of our lists (33,000+) so I went to mailman/data and manually rm'ed them (them being heldmsg-listname-*.pck). I've done this in the past without any problems but for some reason this time it seems to have possibly screwed up my list config such that I can no longer access the admin or admindb URLs. The request is sent but the browser times out waiting for a response.
We're running maybe a dozen other lists on the same machine, and there's absolutely no problems accessing those lists' /admin and /admindb URLs. I've tried restarting mailman (it's worth mentioning that mailmanctl stop doesnt actually stop mailman and it has to be manually killed and restarted with the -s option) and apache, but nothing helps. It's also worth mentioning that there don't seem to be any problems with /options/listname. I've run check_perm and check_db on the list specifically, but there's no reported problems.
Does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be wrong here, or of any other diagnostics I could avail myself of?
