I'm not sure how cPanel affects this. See

The default setting in Defaults.py for PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL is

PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL = 'http://%(hostname)s/pipermail/%(listname)s'

Has this been changed or overridden in mm_cfg.py?

If not, 'hostname' comes from inverting the VIRTUAL_HOSTS dictionary
and looking up the list's host_name attribute in the inverted
dictionary. If not found, DEFAULT_URL_HOST is used, so there should
always be something.

The implication is PUBLIC_ARCHIVE_URL must have been changed.
