I do not get any rejects when applying the patch.
I did pass the config file for the list to htsearch with the -c option.
Any other ideas?
How are people typically handling archive search? I know I could use
mail-archive, but would rather handle things on our end if we can.
Occasionally we need to remove messages from the archives and not sure how
easy that is with mail-archive.

I'd be surprised if this doesn't have conflicts with cPanel's mods. What
happened when you ran patch? were there any rejects?

When I run a search from the archive pages, I get a blank page.
I've seen others asking this, but have never seen a solution.
I think I may have had this working a few years ago, but don't
remember what I did to fix it. It broke when cpanel updated mailman.

Not surprising. cPanel's mailman has many patches of its own, mostly because
of the list name = name_domain feature to allow lists of the same 'name' in
different domains.

When I try running the mmsearch script by itself, I get the following
error, which is expected as I under stand it:
htdig Archives Access Failure
CGI problem. -5-Field count -4- fields:

Yes, this is expected. You could try going to a URL like


If you want to make another attempt to access a list archive then go
via the list users information page.

If this problem persists then please e-mail the following information
to the
mailman at nfbnet.org:
Referer not known

The above is not familiar to me. It may be a cPanel thing.

Running the htsearch command by itself doesn't yield any results with
a keyword and the short format.

Do you specify the -c option with an appropriate config file?

The version of htdig is 3.2.0b6. I noticed that there are patched
versions of rundig and the nightly scripts on the patch site, but
don't know if that applies to newer patches or not.

Those patches allow the nightly update to do an update rather than a
complete rebuild of the htdig search index.
