[I have send this earlier, but it didn't seem to make it to the list.]


I have recvently migrated my mail- and mailinglistserver to a new box.
All works well except for one thing: access to the public archives is

The box is running Linux 2.4.10, with Exim 4.20, Apache 2.n and Mailman
2.1. All is running well. Except for one thing: access to private
archives available, to public archives denied.

  damogran:/ # la -dA /usr/lib/mailman/            
  drwxrwsr-x   20 root     mailman       536 Dec  9 00:28 /usr/lib/mailman/
  damogran:/ # la -dA /usr/lib/mailman/archives
  drwxrwsr-x    4 root     mailman        96 Dec  7 18:44 /usr/lib/mailman/archives

  damogran:/ # la /usr/lib/mailman/archives/public/test-ml*
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 wwwrun   mailman        41 Dec  7 18:40 /usr/lib/mailman/archives/public/test-ml -> /usr/lib/mailman/archives/private/test-ml
  lrwxrwxrwx    1 wwwrun   mailman        46 Dec  7 18:40 /usr/lib/mailman/archives/public/test-ml.mbox -> /usr/lib/mailman/archives/private/test-ml.mbox
  damogran:/ # la -Ad /usr/lib/mailman/archives/private/test-ml
  drwxrwsr-x    5 wwwrun   mailman       360 Dec  8 03:27 /usr/lib/mailman/archives/private/test-ml

And, as for the Apache configuration:

  <VirtualHost *>
    ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/
    Alias /pipermail/ /usr/lib/mailman/archives/public/
    <Directory /usr/lib/mailman/>
      Options FollowSymLinks
    <Directory "/usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin">
      AllowOverride None
      Options None
      Order allow,deny
      Allow from all

Of course I did run check_perms (which no longer gives any warnings) and
check Google. To no avail. 

Someone an idea?
