[Mailman-Users] links in outgoingmail not working

I have mm 2.1.5, Exim4 installed on a Debian box.


When setting up mailing lists the link in the outgoing email fails with a
404 error


The link is:


https://mail.servername.com/cgi-bin/admin/listname.... (Not Found)


The requested URL /cgi-bin/admin/internal was not found on this server.


I can get to the initial admin page at:




but not the overview page




I get the 404 error.


My mm_cfg.py variable looks like this:


"DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN = 'https://%s/cgi-bin/'"

"PRIVATE_ARCHIVE_URL = '/cgi-bin/private'"


My apached.conf looks like this:


#ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/



ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/



# "/usr/lib/cgi-bin" could be changed to whatever your ScriptAliased # CGI
directory exists, if you have that configured.


<Directory /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin/>

    AllowOverride None

    Options ExecCGI

    Order allow,deny

    Allow from all



Iv'e tried tweeking the variables in both configs and running


'bin/withlist -l -a -r fix_url'  


each time, but the problem usually, but not always gets worse; when I try
the link again, it just gives me a blank page (not accessable)


The output from the above command is always the following:


'importing fix_url....

Running fix_url.fix_url...

Loading list mailman (locked)

saving list

Loading list internal (locked)

Saving list



It gives me the above response whether mailman is running or not. (which I
think is correct)


Additionally, the outgoing email to the <newlist> admin is the following
(which doesn't seem right):


'internal-bounces at mail.lucidoc.com; on behalf of;
mailman-admin at mail.lucidoc.com


Any help would be greatly appreciated.
