Hi:

I have three questions - two general, and one about a particular
problem.

1) Is there a plan to offer a search function for private archives?

2) One of our lists has monthly archives. Is there a way to combine
older archives (more than a year or two old) into yearly archives?

3) I administer a few Mailman lists (version 2.1.9.cp2) on a cPanel X
account that I control as well. I have a problem with the "Tend to
pending moderator requests" page. Everything works normally as long
as I am able to approve, reject, discard, etc on the main adminb page.
But if I click on "view all messages from" to deal with messages from a
single person, I get a page with that person's messages but, whatever I
do, I get an error message, given below.

This is a creeping problem. I saw it first on one list, and I didn't worry
since I was about to delete the list. But for the past few weeks, I have
the problem on my main list.

Before posting this, I set up a new list with just one member and posted
a message big enough to be held up for moderation. I had no problem
clicking on "view all messages from" and disposing of the message. It
didn't matter whether or not the list name had a hyphen, in case that is
relevant.

Thanks in advance.

    See
    <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq01.011.htp>
    for links to current solutions.

    This is a highly requested feature and something will eventually be
    done to provide an archive search, but at this point there is no
    timeframe.

    2) One of our lists has monthly archives. Is there a way to combine

    It's probably a manual process and possibly not a good idea, since any
    existing URLs such as those in one archived post pointing to another
    or those in a FAQ or those saved by individuals will be invalidated by
    such a change.

    That said, you could do it by something like the following:

    1) stop Mailman to prevent new mail from being archived
    2) set the list's archive_volume_frequency to yearly
    3) remove all the 'old' monthly directories and .txt files from
    archives/private/listname. also, remove the 'old' subdirectories from
    archives/private/listname/attachments and the 'old' database files
    from archives/private/listname/database
    4) figure out the message number of the last 'old' message in the
    archives/private/listname.mbox/listname.mbox file or the first and
    last of the 'old' monthly messages if you've done this before.
    5) run bin/arch with the appropriate --end (and --start) options as
    determined in step 4). do NOT use the --wipe option.
    6) set the list's archive_volume_frequency back to monthly.
    7) start Mailman.

    account that I control as well. I have a problem with the "Tend to

    First see
    <http://www.python.org/cgi-bin/faqw-mm.py?req=show&file=faq06.011.htp>.

    That said what additional information is in the Apache error_log?

    Is http://server.name//mailman/admindb/<list>_<domain> the correct URL
    for this list's admindb page (Is server.name the same as <domain>)?

    Look at the 'page source' for the 'view all messages from'. Is the
    action URL in the form tag correct?

    I'm really grasping at straws here because all admindb pages should
    generate the same form tag with the same action URL so it should
    either work or not from any of the admindb pages.
