That's your first problem. The archives are always in the
archives/private/ directory. The archives/public/ directory just
contains symlinks to the corresponding archives/private/[list-name]
Also did you move /archives/private/[list-name].mbox/ from the old
server. If not, you will never be able to rebuild your complete
archive from scratch.

First you need to straighten out your archive file locations. You
archives/private/[list-name]/ containing the html archives and
pipermail data for the list.
the cumulative .mbox archive
archives/public/[list-name] a symlink to
archives/private/[list-name] but if
the symlink doesn't exist, Mailman
will create it for a public archive
the first time the list is accessed.
Then, if as I suspect,
archives/private/[list-name].mbox/[list-name].mbox contains only the
post-move messages, you can add those to the html archive with
If archives/private/[list-name].mbox/[list-name].mbox contains all the
list messages from the beginning, or you can piece together one that
does, then you can do
to completely initialize and rebuild the html archive.
It is a good idea to first check the .mbox file with bin/cleanarch.
See 'bin/arch --help' and 'bin/cleanarch --help'.
