FAQ
Hello List,

I'm running into some issues with running mailman on my system. I repeatedly
get the error message "Starting mailman: Site List is missing: mailman"

I have verified this exists, I have removed the list and added the list via
command line & web interface but still get this error message. I have
followed the FAQ steps listed for this particular message but I haven't
gotten mailman to start up. Any insights into this would be appreciated.
Below are the steps I have taken.

Thank you

Rob


[root at maillist2 mailman]# ./bin/rmlist mailman
