[Mailman-Users] Switching servers

    Are there any caveats to moving a mailman installation from one
server to another?  So far, I thought of basically the following:

    - Shutdown sendmail on both servers (so messages don't get
      received/sent during down time)
    - Switch DNS IP to new server
    - Install fresh copy of Mailman on the new server (usual setup)

    o This is where it's somewhat blank to me, can I just tar/gz up the
      old installation of Mailman from the old server (sans stuff like
      ~/Mailman, ~/cgi-bin, etc.), and untar it on the new server?  Or
      do I have to selectively go through the files and grab only what
      it created?

    - Set up aliases
    - Configure webserver
    - Restart the whole shebang and hope everyone's happy...

    Both servers are the same when it comes to the OS that's on it, so
that won't be a problem.

    I'm sure I've forgotten something here...but, that's why I'm asking.
