[Mailman-Users] Mailman Bug?/no Admin level web access

May 10th was the day I put in the new hard drive after the old one 
died. So basically I did a clean install.  I had set up the domain/host 
stuff on the old drive so all I did was reinstall. I only have one 
domain/host name, and SELinux is on, but not on the snmpd daemon. My 
firewall is technically on, but since I'm trying to debug, it's set to 
allow everything. The admin interface never worked since May 10th. It 
did work on the old drive, but I had the last build of mailman then.  
There was nothing in /var/log/messages except the usual service starts 
and stops.

Are you running with SELinux enabled?  (Are there additional clues
about the permission failures in /var/log/messages?  If you start
with SELinux disabled, is Mailman happy?)

So, what changed on May 10th?  :-)

Not sure what your environment is, but I've seen that message in a
multi-domain cPanel environment, where you can set up a domain before
it's actually living on that host (preparing to move in). You can get 
far as creating a list, but when you go to access the admin pages, it
fails with that message. As soon as the domain actually resolves to 
host, the problem goes away.
