[Mailman-Users] Moving archives to a new list?
lists at openenterprise.ca
Sat Nov 22 00:05:50 CET 2008
Thanks for getting back to me. Unfortunately this didnt work completely
since all the html, attachements etc were not included. So I tried this
but still not complete success
1: Copied archives/private/OLDLIST.mbox/OLDLIST.mbox to
2: Copied everything in archives/private/OLDLIST.ca to archives/N EWLIST.ca
3: Edited archives/private/NEWLIST.ca/pipermail.pck so the basedir is
I could then go to the archives page and see all the old messages just
fine, but a couple problems persist
1: If I send a message to the NEWLIST, it is processed fine, but the
archive html pages does not show the new postings?
2: All previous postings in the archives to OLDLIST, where there are
attachements, still point to the OLDLIST location
Is there any way to at least fix #1? that you know of
