Hi Folks,

I am still having problems with my first Mailman installation. I have a 
successful build of MM version 2.1.2.  I have cofig'd a virtual host 
with the following httpd.conf entry:

    ServerName mailman.skybuilders.com
    DocumentRoot /usr/local/mailman/
    ScriptAlias  /mailman/ /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/
#    Alias /images/ /usr/local/mailman/htdocs/images/
    Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
    ServerAdmin jesse at skybuilders.com
    ServerSignature email
    DirectoryIndex index.php index.html index.shtml index.pl
    AddType application/x-httpd-php .php .php4 .php3 .phtml .html .xml .py
    AddHandler cgi-script cgi pl py

I dropped a test page (index.html) at /usr/local/mailman/ to make sure 
the site resolves correctly. But when I browse to 
http://.../mailman/admin I get the "Mailman CGI error!!!" error page.  I 
have set ownership down the /usr/local/mailman tree to be for 
apache:mailman. I have also run:
./configure --with-cgi-gid=apache, which hasn't help me sort out the 
permissions issue.

Any suggestions?  Thanks.
