See the FAQ at <http://wiki.list.org/x/lYA9>.

Because each of your servers has a different web host name, only one
server's name will match the host name in the list's web_page_url
attribute and only that server will display the lists.

The easiest fix is to set


in mm_cfg.py. Then the host names don't need to match. The more
elaborate fix is to make sure that each hosts DEFAULT_URL_HOST is set
appropriately in it's mm_cfg.py and run fix_url after copying
