Mailman's INSTALL document contains a hint as to how to split mail distribution and web GUI on different machines. It has a couple of comments that relate: <quote> .... Make sure that you have write permissions to the target installation directory, and permission to create a setgid file in the file system where it resides (NFS and other mounts can be configured to inhibit setgid settings). ... - If you plan on running your MTA and web server on different machines, sharing Mailman installations via NFS, be sure that the clocks on those two machines are synchronized closely. You might take a look at the file Mailman/LockFile.py; the constant CLOCK_SLOP helps the locking mechanism compensate for clock skew in this type of environment. .... </quote> In other words you need to use some file sharing mechanism so that both the mail server and web server can access the Mailman files. At a basic level all you have to do is: 1. ensure both servers can access the mailman install directory using NFS. 2. ensure the uids and gids are common to both systems. 3. get Mailman working on your mail server. 4. ensure the information in the httpd.conf used by the Apache server refers to the mailman file path as it sees it through NFS. 5. adjust as necessary to get it working. Most of this is straight UNIX admin stuff and what you do in detail depends on how your local network is run. For instance: 1. have you already got NFS in use for file sharing on your LAN. 2. are you are using NIS for distributing passwd, group and automount maps. 3. are you using something else for distributing information, LDAP for instance I'm not trying to palm you off but there are so many variations on how networks and sharing/distribution can be set up that a single, simple step-by-step guide is more difficult to write than you might imagine. If you have UNIX guru then I'd discuss the problem with him. Otherwise you will need collect the information about how your network is setup and ask again if you are still having problems doing it yourself . > > >Thank you very much in advance. >-- >Lito A.
