[Mailman-Users] Mountain Lion server trouble

I tried the instructions on http://www.livetime.com/mountain-lion-mailman-mailing-list/  to install mailman on 10.8 server, but have hit a snag. The build seemed to go perfectly, but the change to the httpd_server_app.conf file breaks apache. Previously, the OS X wiki service was working properly, but after the change, the system log shows apache failing to launch and a failed spawn every 10 seconds. When I comment out the change to httpd_server_app.conf, everything is back to normal.  


The change to httpd_server_app.conf is: Include /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-mailman.conf 

The content of /private/etc/apache2/extra/httpd-mailman.conf is:

# Config file for linking the mailman mailing list manager to MacOSX Server Web Server.
ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/"
Alias /pipermail/ "/usr/local/mailman/archives/public/"
