I'm sorry to re-visit this so soon, but no one has repsonded and I'm really lost on 
this one. I have searched google over and over for every possible solution and keep 
coming up empty handed. I know this is a suexec problem but don't know how to resolve 
it. Can anyone at least point me in the right direction?

Subject: Mailman, Fedora Core, 500 Internal Server Error

I've installed mailman using Yum. I'll create a list which sends out the email that 
the list has been created. When I subcribe using the email it works fine, however if I 
click on the link back to the server I get a 500 Internal Server Error.

I look in my Apache logs and get the following error message:

[Wed Nov 22 19:19:56 2006] [error] [client X..118.247] attempt to invoke directory as 
script: /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/ 
[Wed Nov 22 19:21:22 2006] [error] [client X..118.247] Premature end of script 
headers: admin 
[Wed Nov 22 19:22:30 2006] [error] [client X.X.118.247] Premature end of script 
headers: listinfo

Next I look in my /var/log/httpd/suexec.log and I get:

[2006-11-24 10:07:27]: uid: (500/morganfundingcorp) gid: (500/500) cmd: confirm 
[2006-11-24 10:07:27]: file is either setuid or setgid: (/usr/lib/mailman/cgi- 

So I change from 2755 with User as root, Group as mailman to 0755 and now I get:

[2006-11-25 14:45:43]: uid: (500/morganfundingcorp) gid: (500/500) cmd: admin 
[2006-11-25 14:45:43]: target uid/gid (500/500) mismatch with directory (0/41) or 
program (0/41) 
[2006-11-25 14:45:49]: uid: (500/morganfundingcorp) gid: (500/500) cmd: listinfo 
[2006-11-25 14:45:49]: target uid/gid (500/500) mismatch with directory (0/41) or 
program (0/41)

Anyone have any clues? I am at a dead end.
