I am moving a LARGE Version 2.1.5 (linux) list to a 2.1.8 (FreeBsd) server on
a different domain.
I created the list on the new server and basically just cut/pasted most
attribute fields from the existing to the new.
Two things I could not do this way, and they are:
1) replicate the user-base (about 1000)
2) replicate the "Non-member filters" (about 5000)
I initially tried to simply copy the config.pck file, configure /etc/hosts to
point the old server-name to the new one, and was able to see all the users,
etc... made a couple of needed changes, and reset /etc/hosts. Then Mailman
crashed, spawning a bazillion processes, and "too many open files" forced a
So obviously that doesn't work :-(
I can dump the database OK, and see what I need, but how can I get this data
back into the new list?
