But now the archive simply will not work. Nothing gets added to the archive
mbox file when I post to the list nor can I access the archive web pages
(and yes, I double-checked the list archive settings and made sure the
archive files are all still there). I am using the built-in archiver, it
seems to not be able to find the archive files because all I get when I try
to view the archive is a page that says "Private archive file not found".

I've looked at everything I can think of at this point and can't find a
solution. What am I missing? Is there an obscure setting somewhere or a
database file or something out there that needs to be told what lists are
on the server?
No. The lists are the subdirectories of the lists/ directory - no other
special stuff.

Check Mailman's error log. If there are problems with archiving posts,
there should be shunted messages and tracebacks in the log with more
detailed information.

Also check your web server access and error logs for more detail.

Here's an example what permissions in your archives structure should
look like

[msapiro at msapiro ...f/test-mailman]$ ll -a archives
total 0
drwxrwsr-x+ 4 Owner None 0 Dec 19 21:41 .
drwxrwsr-x+ 20 Owner None 0 Feb 24 10:43 ..

Note that 'Owner' on your system is probably 'root' or the 'mailman'
user or a combination depending on how mailman was installed. 'None'
above is the 'mailman group and MUST be that group on you system.
