Here is my global DirectoryIndex.
DirectoryIndex index.html index.htm index.shtml index.php
index.php4 index.php3 index.phtml index.cgi
I just tried adding that to the <Directory> section for
/var/mailman/archives, with no luck. Here is the relevant config (which
gives me a 404 accessing the archive)
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /var/mailman/cgi-bin/
Alias /pipermail/ /var/mailman/archives/public/

I don't have the MailMan files in the document root of the VirtualHost I
added it to (the SSL enabled VirtualHost). So I added the <Directory>
tag for /var/mailman at the end of the config chunk above. That seems to
do it. :)
