What did the log entry look like? Post the text of it rather than assuming 
people can guess what it says.

I cycle logs but keep a week of backlog for precisely this sort of 
occassion. In any event what does today's log say when you try to access 
the Mailman URIs and which URIs are you trying?

Are you running

1. MM 2.1.x and if so have you run mailmanctl

2. MM 2.0.x and if so have you installed the mailman user crontab

Which bit of "a bit more detail" is causing the problem. Please reread my 
previous post and see if you can respond more fully. Without information 
there is not much anyone can do to help you.

You can also add to the list of questions:

1. what did you add to your Apache httpd.conf

2. what URI returned the 404 response

As you initially posted to mailman-users, it is both courteous and 
advisable to copy the list with your response so that other list members 
can contribute to finding a solution to your problem or learn about any 
problems you have found and possible solutions to them.
