mailman - permissions issue after migration to ubuntu lts

Hi All,

I’m on my second migration now on the same server… still in love w/ Virtualmin.

That said, I’m not sure what the file permissions should be for my mailman directories on Ubuntu 12.x LTS.

Could someone check their permissions for me ?

Old System (CentOS 5.x) :
/var/lib/mailman : drwxrwsr-x 2 root mailman

New System (Ubuntu 12.x) :
/var/lib/mailman : some junk

There is no mailman user on the new system, so I’m guessing there is a different scheme in place here.

thanks much!

Finally found it – the group name changed from mailman to ‘list’

chown -R root:own /var/lib/mailman
service mailman start

et viola.
