This is a very common problem and is most likely a configuration
problem.  If you installed from source then look at your web server and
find out which group it runs as, then run the ./configure with the
switch:   --with-cgi-gid=<webserver group's ID>

This is well documented in Mailman's README files.

After you resolve that problem you may wish to look in the FAQ:
