[Mailman-Users] setting up mailman

Thanks again,

I have looked at the error logs (all that I could find that related to http
access) - however, before I go any further I thought I should make sure I am
clear on one thing...

I am running mailman on a server whose name is s1.######.net.au
I have a virtual server on this machine - ######.com.au

I want the user to use www.######.com.au/mailman when accessing the lists

Is this correct?

In the httpd/conf.d I have placed the s1.hostnet.net.au
In the mm_cfg.py file set place DEFAULT_URL_HOST as ######.com.au
                                DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST as ######.com.au

After creating the new list I place all alias information in the etc/aliases

Find the apache error log (look for ErrorLog directives in your
httpd.conf if you don't know where it is), and see what it says. It
may be a permissions problem of some sort in accessing Mailman's
cgi-bin directory, or it may be a group mismatch error. If the latter
and the message is not self explanatory, search the FAQ wizard for
