Hi Gerald,

Sounds like your ScriptAlias is playing up.  Did this for me with vhosts too..
I would put everything, including your script alias inside your
vhost..  Then, it will not be fouled up by the default script index of

Mine is set up like this:

*** all your normal vhost stuff for your server here ***
ScriptAlias /mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/mailman/ /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/
<Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman/>
   AllowOverride None
   Options ExecCGI
   Order allow,deny
   Allow from all

Before I went to bed (in the wee hours of Friday morning) I ran a final check and tested the mass add of 3 users (3 of my email accounts at various servers).  All appeared to be working very nicely.  I even created two other mailing lists without incident.

It allows me to login but any action bounces back to the login screen and does not perform the requested function.  I have four mailing lists with Mailman as the primary list and all four behave the same way.  I have checked the cookies and they're setting fine.
