FAQ
hello,
i've received a dump of different lists and archives
from an older mailman version (don't know which version).
i've installed mailman2.1, copied the lists to the mailman
dir and used the ./bin/fix_url.py.

everything works fine exept for one thing: if an "old" user
(from the previous version) asks mailman to send a passord-reminder,
the following error occurs.

any tips?

thanks,
_andreas.

    Hmmm... I suspect this fix_url.py may be part of the answer to my own
    question. I'll look into it and see if it helps.

    Interesting... That is not supposed to happen in version 2.1 (are you
    running the full version or one of the betas?)
    From the archives come wisdom in form of words from Barry:
    ==I'm guessing somewhere along the way Python got upgraded and the
    status of the crypt libraries changed (either they were there before
    and not now, or vice versa). Try setting USE_CRYPT=0 in your
    mm_cfg.py file.

    A better solution would be to upgrade to MM2.1. It uses sha1 hashing,
    which will always be available.
    ==
    I don't think that MM2.1 recognizes the "USE_CRYPT" variable, but since
    it is calling the older version of the Password handler, that may work.

    Hope that works (or it's not a problem any more...)

    hmm, no, USE_CRYPT=0 did not work.
    I am using 2.1 full version.
    Maybe there is a way to convert the user database to the current format?
