xen debian images

I have found a bug in the mailman settings using the default xen debian images and this might exist in the other images as well.

The default setup does not change the url to the correct one.

You can configure your mailing list at the following web page:


The web page for users of your mailing list is:


So the new xen domain is never set and unless the user is notified or they get complaints they will never know.

The script should change the default url to the new url and send the correct email to root.



Also mailman fails to start because /var/log/mailman/ is not there.

More bugs....


Bug in Mailman version 2.1.11

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.

The previous error is because the mill log directory is not there and when you create it the owner should be 'list'

Thanks for pointing this out - this is really a Cloudmin bug, as it should fix up the /etc/mailman/mm_cfg.py file with the new hostname. I will fix this in version 4.5.

What was that mill log directory that you had to create?

Odd that the Mailman package install didn't create this - but I wlll add that directory in the next version of the Debian Xen images with Virtualmin.
