    Well, I had hope for a little while. That hope was dashed when you all said that the problem is different.
    You mention that mailman i old. They have the updated version 3.x. Might this be better suited?

    That being said, what might be other places to look to find an answer to my problem?

    Thanks

    I did not mean that your mailman version is old, it was just a comment on the way mailman is setup.

    The next thing would be to check if the mailman apache config is active and loaded by apache. Which Linux distribution and OS version do you use?

    Hello Till(others too:),
    Where will I find the apache mailman config on my server? Then, how to see if it is loaded by apache?
    Thanks

    I don't have a Debian 7 here at the moment, but in that version the file is most likely in /etc/apache2/conf.d/ as the /etc/apache2/conf-enabled/ folder is only used from Debian 8 if I remember correctly.

    I found som efile:
    apache2-doc
    mailman.conf
    security
    charset
    other-vhosts-access-log
    squirrelmail.conf
    javascript-common.conf
    owncloud.conf
    localized-error-pages
    phpmyadmin.conf

    I presume that the mailman.conf is the file we are looking for?
    Thanks

    I presume it will be the mailman.conf file.
    How do I see if it is being used?
    Thanks for any guidance.

    Till, (or someone else?)
    Any feedback on how to confirm that my mainman config is being actively loaded by apache?
    Thanks

    Apache has commands to list loaded modules and vhosts but I'm not sure if there is a command to list aliases. So one way might be to add a wrong config line in that file and try to restart apache if it fails, then you know that the file is read. Yeah, not professional but easy :D

    So, the file mailman.conf, this is the right file to modify?

    For the wrong config text, just put any garbage text in an uncommented line? The file I have is the original install text. I could post is needed?

    Do I need to put this text n a certain area, or anywhere will work?

    Then, when I reboot, I guess that upon boot up, I would get some kind of errors throughout the boot up phase? Or. how would I know the error happens? Where would I look to see the error?

    As well, the error will not mess up the server running, right? Only that apache will not work right, right?

    Thanks

    mailman.conf should be the right file. Just add a new line at the end like:

    test

    as long as it's not behnd a comment sign, then apache shuld throw an error.

    Hello,
    Thanks for the comment.
    Whee will I see the error? If I am watching the boot up script, will I see it there? Or. where else might I find the error?
    Thanks

    Simply restart apache. You can't miss the error as apache will stop working completely.
