[Mailman-Users] Help running Mailman on Mac OS X...

Sorry if this has been covered before, I just subscribed to the
Mailman list.  I need advice on configuring either Mailman or
Apache (on Mac OS X).

I'm unable to use Mailman's form actions without getting an error.
For example in my testlist2 info page
(http://gamma.stat.ucla.edu/mailman/listinfo.cgi/testlist2) I click
on the "Visit Subscriber list" button and get a bug error.
Looking at the error logs (see below) I suspecting that the problem
is with Apache.  HTTP-REFERER and REQUEST_URI are correct but

Any clues that can help get me back on track?

Thank you very much,
