Well, I don't get exactly that, but I see something is wrong.

If I go to <http://lists.thericehouse.net/pipermail/myfriends/>, I get
your (currently empty archive). This is not what you want - you want
the archive to be private so I go to the private archive validation
page. Thus, you MUST change your 'pipermail' alias to point to the
'public' directory.

If I go to <http://lists.thericehouse.net/mailman/private/myfriends/> I
get redirected to <http://dev.thericehouse.net/offline.html> which is
clearly not right. I should go to the cgi-bin/private wrapper.

However, if I go to
<http://lists.thericehouse.net/mailman/listinfo/myfriends/> or
<http://lists.thericehouse.net/mailman/admin/myfriends/> I get the
expected listinfo and admin login pages so the cgi-bin wrappers are
working in general.

So, do you have a 'private' wrapper in your /usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/
directory? If not, it should be there. If so, and if there's nothing
mangled about it or its permissions, there must be something in your
Apache config that's intercepting this URL and preventing it from
working as it should.
