The OP indicated that he had changed DEFAULT_URL_PATTERN. If he can do
that, he can run fix_url.

I know nothing about setting a cPanel domain to use https, but I imaging
more that just the Mailman part of this requires action by a server admin.

The real underlying issue with cPanel is the fact that Mailman just
"comes in the box" with cPanel. There are some hosting services using
cPanel who are very conscientious and cooperative in supporting their
customers use of Mailman, but unfortunately, there are others who only
offer Mailman because it "comes in the box" and are unwilling to put any
effort into supporting it.

If your host won't cooperate, see
