[Mailman-Users] unable to start Mailman

It seems like /etc/init.d/mailman and /etc/rc.d/mailman both are runing
/usr/lib/mailman/bin/mailmanctl, as you can you below:


Here how I moved my lists over to the new server:

1. I renamed the /usr/lib/mailman to mailman.org
2. ln -s /mnt/ebs/volume/mailman /var/lib/mailman
3 tarred up the /usr/lib/mailman/* mailman directory in the old server
4.then  untarred archives, data, lists, and spam folders to the
//mnt/ebs-volume/mailman folder, which is linked to the /usr/lib/mailman

]# sudo find / -name mailman

Using the command line list_lists, it does show all the list, but the lists
do not show up on the web interface. I apologize for the confusion. Once
again, thanks for your help.
