Thanks for you reply mark.

I had little time to do it and that was what I did, after doing that for
each of the lists I wanted to move, I got several errors.

I then remembered, I don't know if that is mandatory, to regenerate
virtual-mailman.db using genaliases commmand.

so the steps I took per mailing list where:
withlist -l -r fix_url listname --urlhost=www.vhost1.eu
bin/arch --wipe listname

and at the end i did genaliases command and did /etc/init.d/mailman restart

And it worked, thanks Mark
