	When you did the upgrade, it probably wiped out your apache 
configuration file, as well as all the stuff that had been done to 
your MTA configuration to enable the mailing lists.

	If you've got a backup, you may be able to restore the affected 
files.  If not, you're going to have a fair amount of work ahead of 
you to re-create these files.

	Moral of the story: Don't blindly apply any upgrade from anyone, 
anywhere.  Make sure you have a good backup before you apply any 
upgrade, and make sure you know what the upgrade is going to do.
