It WORKS! I'm ELATED!
I'm not sure what exactly I did, except meticulously go through
Kathleen's instructions ONE MORE TIME!
One hint: if you get as far as successfully creating the 'test' list
but can't connect to the web portion try two things:
1) make sure you have " " around the your ScriptAlias statements in
Kathleen has: ScriptAlias /mailman/ /Applications/mailman/cgi-bin/
Should be : ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/Applications/mailman/cgi-bin/"
2) make sure you stop/start Apache in the Sharing System Pref -- so
simple, yet so deadly!
I want to thank everyone one both the web-development and mailmanusers
lists for all your help and Kathleen for some really great instructions!
Now, is there a way to SEARCH on mailman archives? I don't see it as
an option in pipermail ... I'll bet there's a FAQ about this though so
I'm going to Google it.
