Hi, Recently we have been noticing an issue with mailman.

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv_mailman
(XID srqz9m) The “mailman” service is not configured: there are no configured mailing lists
Code:
 [~]# ps -aux | grep mailman
Warning: bad syntax, perhaps a bogus '-'? See /usr/share/doc/procps-3.2.8/FAQ
root       69116  0.0  0.0 103368   844 pts/0    SN+  10:05   0:00 grep mailman
[~]#
However mailman works with
Code:
[~]# /etc/init.d/mailman start
Starting mailman:
Starting Mailman's master qrunner.

[~]# /etc/init.d/mailman status
mailmanctl (pid 72311) is running...
 [~]#
Our application check status of first one and hence need to be fixed.

My query here is why does it start with cpanel scripts? how to fix this.

PS: I didnt find how to start a new discussion.

PS:

Hello,

It's by design that Mailman doesn't start until the first mailing list is created by a user. You can avoid that warning message by creating a mailing list as a cPanel user.

Thank you.
