[Mailman-Users] changing default web page url
gary at lists.quartertone.net

Is there an easy way to edit the default URLs after the lists have been
created? I know from the Site administrator's guide
(http://www.gnu.org/software/mailman/site.html) that this is possible
using the bin/config_list command, which works, but is very tedious.
Yes, I practically live in a shell, but this is just unneccessarily
First, the background information: The web server in question is in my
local network, having an address in the 192.168.x.x range. Within my
internal network, I refer to the server using that class C IP or the
hostname associated with the IP address (internal.quartertone.net). From
the internet, the server is accessed using the "real" IP address or its
hostname (external.quartertone.net), which is different than the
I want to be able to maintain the list from within my network as well as
allowing other moderators/managers to access the same links from remote
locations. So I set in mm_cfg.py
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'external.quartertone.net'
butI could not properly access the links from the local network.
One possible solution i came up with, just as i was about to gouge my
eyes out, was to put an entry in /etc/hosts (of whatever computer I
would be using) with external.quartertone.net pointing to the local
class C IP address. This way I would be able to configure the server
locally. But this is a rather ugly hack.
There must be some way to tell mailman to use (or trick it into using)
the same server name that it was first accessed with. So, if i went to
http://192.168.1.23/mailman/admin/firstlist all the links should begin
with http://192.168.1.23 instead of http://external.quartertone.net
Any suggestions would be very welcome..
Server setup: Red Hat 9.0, postfix-2.0.9, mailman-2.1.2
