Look in the apache error log and see what it says for this error?

You will need

<Directory ">/usr/local/mailman/cgi-bin/"
    Require all granted

(and you may need Options +ExecCGI)


You may also need to enable mod_cgi if it isn't enabled in your config.
Some distros have

sudo a2enmod cgi

I don't know about FreeBSD.

If this doesn't help, post the Mailman relevant parts of your config and
the error log message.
