There is no "index.html". There is a cgi-bin directory which contains
the various wrappers - admin, admindb, confirm, create, edithtml,
listinfo, options, private, rmlist, roster and subscribe which in turn
invoke scripts in Mailman/Cgi. The "home" of all this is usually
called $prefix and defaults to /usr/local/mailman unless you changed
it with --prefix=<dir> when you ran configure.
You need to tell your web server to run scripts from $prefix/cgi-bin.
For Apache this would be something like
ScriptAlias /mailman/ $prefix/cgi-bin/
in the Apache config.
All this is covered in the INSTALL document that comes with the
