[Mailman-Users] when renaming a virtual domain the listinfo command can't show list

Hello Mark,

My fault -  cut & paste typo. What I actually did was:

Withlist -l -r fix_url testsdu -u newdomain.sdu.dk

And I have 

VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off in mm_cfg.py.

I can address the list on : http://newdomain.sdu.dk/mailman/listinfo/testsdu
But all other lists area addressed on: http://mymailserver.sdu.dk/mailman/listinfo/somelist

What.s The problem ??

If you did literally the above, it didn't work. You must not have a .py extension on fix_url. Also, it appears you are trying to do two lists.
This requires two commands:

withlist -l -r fix_url testsdu -u newdomain.sdu.dk withlist -l -r fix_url mytest -u newdomain.sdu.dk

If the above is not the issue, then perhaps you are not visiting the correct listinfo URL. Lists whose host in their web_page_url attribute is newdomain.sdu.dk will only appear on the listinfo page http://newdomain.sdu.dk/mailman/listinfo. They won't appear on any other host's listinfo unless you set VIRTUAL_HOST_OVERVIEW = Off in mm_cfg.py.
