[Mailman-Users] Migrating from one server to another

I am working on a similar task, in that I have created a new server to host
my lists.

I have Mailman installed and configured to work fine and I copied over my
lists to the appropriate folder. The issue I am having is that when I go to
Mailman/admin I am not seeing any of my lists. If I go to a specific list by
name I see that all the information is there.

Am I missing a step in letting mailman know about the lists?

Thank you,

I'm not aware of any documentation, but at a minimum you need to move
the contents of the lists/ directory and if you want archives, the
contents of the /archives directory.

If the system has no queued messages/tasks and no pending requests,
that's all you need to do. If there are queued messages, you may want
to move some or all of qfiles/. If there are pending requests, you may
want to move pending.pck and the heldmesg-* files from data/
