[Mailman-Users] Administrative requests page for migrated lists uses wrong old server fqdn for data submission

My mailing lists were migrated from a machine running Mac OS X Server 10.6 (Snow Leopard) [let's refer to it by the fdqn old-server.domain.com], where mailman was supplied and supported out of the box. The destination was an OS X Server 10.11 (El Capitan) system running Server 5.2 [let's refer to it by the fdqn new-server.domain.com], which required the manual installation of mailman from source.

I copied the requisite directories archives, data, lists and qfiles from /var/mailman/ to /usr/local/mailman/. I then ran

	/usr/local/mailman/bin/check_perms -f

which made sure that these were given the proper permissions for the new system.

Let's say my mailing list is named "family." I can now bring up


I can change all settings to my heart's content, and they all take. However, when I try to "Tend to pending moderator requests" and click on the Submit All Data button on


it directs me to


which has been decommissioned.

When editing the list settings, there were references to "old-server.domain.com" in the host_name field on the General Options page, and I changed that to "new-server.domain.com".

What do I need to fix, in order for the button submission to go through properly?
