You have to actually read the instructions.


    - Configure your Web server to point to the Pipermail public
      mailing list archives:

      For example, in Apache:

         Alias /pipermail/ $prefix/archives/public/

      Consult your Web server's documentation for details.  Also be
      sure to configure your Web server to follow symbolic links in
      this directory, otherwise public Pipermail archives won't be
      accessible.  For Apache users, consult the FollowSymLinks

      Now restart your Web server.
