FAQ
I'm moving my mailman lists to a new server and when I go to the web
interface, I now get:


Bug in Mailman version 2.1.8


We're sorry, we hit a bug!

Please inform the webmaster for this site of this problem. Printing of
traceback and other system information has been explicitly inhibited,
but the webmaster can find this information in the Mailman error logs.

But there is no information in the Mailman logs or the apache logs about
this error and my posts to the lists fail. Any pointers would be much
appreciated.

    OK, my cgi-bin was missing the suid. Now all I need to figure out is my
    post failures.

    Is $prefix/mail/mailman also missing SETGID?

    If that's not it, does your MTA use aliases for Mailman, and if so, are
    they there?

    What's in the MTA log for an attempted post?

    I thought I should post that I did solve it. My $prefix/mail/mailman
    was also missing it's siud, but my exim install was also missing a + in
    front of the local domains. So now my mail can be delivered to mailman
    and mailman can process it. Thanks.

    No, there was nothing. I finally figured out that my permissions lost
    the suid in transfer. I can now access my web portion. Now I just need
    to test if my post failures were related.

    Thank you for your response.

    It is a good practice to use `$PREFIX/mailman/bin/check_perms` after setting up
    a new mailman (;
