If you are not using multiple domains, set


in mm_cfg.py. This will allow all public lists to appear on the
listinfo page regardless of whether the "host" of the web page matches
the "host" of the list.

Depending on what the error is that prevents your creating lists from
the web, it may fix that too. It will if the reason is that the "host"
of the create web page doesn't match any of the url hosts in the
VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary.

It may be that the proxy is causing the web page "host" name seen by
the software to be different from what you are using to access the
pages and causing these problems.
