The old version was 2.12 rc2, so it’s not that old.
list_lists does not pick up the old, archived lists, but does find any
new lists created on the new host. Comparing the
contents of a list from the old server to one created on the new
// contents of list directory from old, crashed host for the list oldList:
[root lists]# ls -lR oldList
drwxrwsr-x 2 root mailman 4096 May 29 14:10 en
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root mailman 24 May 29 14:10 request.pck
-rw-r--r-- 1 root mailman 5582 May 29 14:10 listinfo.html
// Contents of directory for list, wocka17, created on the new host
[root lists]# ls -lR wocka17
-rw-rw---- 1 mailman mailman 3714 Jul 22 09:00 config.pck
-rw-rw---- 1 root mailman 3714 Jul 21 12:05 config.pck.last
-rw-rw-r-- 1 root mailman 24 Jul 21 12:05 request.pck
So it looks like I’m missing the config.pck files on the lists
from the old host. Did I get a bad backup? The disks eventually
blew up on the old host so that’s plausible.
Is there a way to re-generate the config.pck files? And where
is the list of subscribers for each list kept?
