Hello all. I just took over a job where I have to admin a mailman
server that died over the weekend. I have all the files, so I thought
I'd just roll a new server and upgrade to the latest version. I'm
going from version 2.1.4 to 2.1.9.
After installing mailman from yum on Fedora 5, I added
DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST, DEFAULT_URL_HOST to mm_cfg.py, and set the
VAR_PREFIX to point to a folder containing my old data, lists,
archive, and spam folders.
I ran check_perms -f, which set all the old list data to the correct
mailman group. However, I can't seem to see the lists in my mailman
setup anywhere. If I run list_lists, I get no results. If I create a
new list, it shows up in the same place as my old list data, so I
think it's pointing to the right place, but it's just not finding the
I read about the move_list command, which seems to be deprecated. I
tried doing withlist -l -r list-name, as well, but I would always get
back the following error:
Loading list list-name (locked)
Unknown list: list-name

Been pretty stuck at this point for awhile now. Any guidance would be
