    You need to make config.db readable by the user or group under which Apache runs...
    usually "nobody". Try
    egrep "(User|Group)" httpd.conf

    You should probably run "check_perms" in the Mailman bin directory. IIRC, it
    can even correct permissions problems if run as root.

    Also, rather than putting all of mailman into a public web directory, try
    ScriptAlias /mailman/ "/path/to/mailman/cgi-bin/"
    in your apache configuration.

    Otherwise, remote users may be able to read your files, which could enable
    them to do Bad Things. Of course, this may not be true depending on your
    installation...

    Check your permissions in the Mailman Home-dir.
    check also user and group

    Not really helpful -- I've received this exact same error when
    check_perms came out OK and all the permissions WERE fine.

    it sounds like a silly question, but check, if the mailman user group ID and
    the mailman user group have the same ID.
    I have the same problem today.

    BTW, can you send me the URL of your domain?
    Mailman under the Apache Directory might not work.
    "|/usr/local/apache/htdocs/mailman/mail/wrapper post
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
    change the mailman dir to /home/mailman, check the perms and read the FAQ

    are the directorys owned by root or mailman or nobody ?

    check this!
