FAQ
Hi, Folks,

I've been using mailman for almost a year with no problems and great
results.

Kudos to the creators!

Right now, for my users to see the mailman 'home' page with a list of the
publicly advertised lists, I give them the URL:

http://<hostname>/mailman/listinfo.cgi

What I'd like to do is shorten this to:

http://<hostname>/mailman

I've tried a few things, redirect, links, Scriptaliases and the like, but
I haven't hit on the right solution.

No doubt others have figured it out.

Care to share the 'secret?'

Thanks,

-jeffrey barteet

    Well, one way you could do it is like this...
    go into /etc/apache/access.conf or wherever it is on your system and
    then add this:
    <Directory /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman>
    DirectoryIndex listinfo.cgi
    </Directory>

    Maybe that isn't the best way. If someone knows something better please
    say so. I guess another thing you could do is make DirectoryIndex
    something like index.cgi and have a symbolic link.

    Oh and I'm not too sure if that should be /usr/lib/cgi-bin/mailman or
    /usr/lib/mailman/cgi-bin.
