[Mailman-Users] Moving lists

My old Mailman host died a while back, and I'm finally getting around to 
getting the new one running again. Before I shut off the old host I 
tarred up the old files and have them on the new server.

I just moved the components from the old archives and lists directories 
into the new locations, and when I go to 
http://<new><domain>.com/mailman/admin/<listname> I get the front page, 
but all the links are to the old server.

At that point I moved /usr/local/mailman/lists/<listname> to 
/usr/local/mailman/lists/<listname>.bak and created the list fresh with 
the newlist command. But when I went in to the admin page I discovered 
that there were no members of the list, and when I went to the archive 
the messages were all there, but the "more information about this list" 
link was back to the old server again.

So, where do I dig up the membership list, and how do I deal with all 
the old URLs?
