    We are getting the error /scripts/mailman_chown_archives: not found. We have ran both /scripts/fixmailman and /scripts/reinstallmailman and have had no luck.

    We are running cPanel 11.24.5-S38506 on FreeBSD.

    Any ideas on how to get /scripts/mailman_chown_archives back?

    The script "mailman_chown_archives" is new as of cPanel 11.25; if the system was downgraded that will explain why it is missing.

    To use the script it is necessary to upgrade to cPanel 11.25; as STABLE is on 11.24 the system would need to be switched to RELEASE, CURRENT, (or EDGE) to avail of the cPanel 11.25 software upgrade and included enhancements.

    If needing to stay on STABLE until it receives the new version, I would check for and remove, if it exists, the cron job that may be attempting to run the script.

    Here is an example of the relevant crontab entry (for "root"):
    Code:
    # crontab -l | grep mailman_chown_archives
    0 2 * * * /scripts/mailman_chown_archives

    Hi Don and thank you for the reply on other thread...and this post.

    I had done an upgrade to 11.25 and it killed all my Urchin stats for cPanel users..

    Seems now I am back on 11.24?? And I also lost my log reporting..

    How can I get what I put in planet ticket to you please?

    Thx...Jim

    A downgrade from 11.25 to 11.24 could only have occurred if the build tree was changed (e.g., from 11.25 on RELEASE to 11.24 on STABLE); if this was not intentional I would check with the support staff that assisted (e.g., at the upstream data center or hosting service provider).

    If you would like to provide the error detail that was encountered I recommend creating a new forums thread (so as to prevent any possible confusion between a different inquiry like mailman); in the new thread it will help to post information describing what actions or steps were taken before, during, and after (seeing the errors), to help clarify the surrounding circumstances.

    If needed, an issue may also be escalated to us via contacting the upstream data center or host. If there is difficulty in pursuing this route the following page may be used to initiate a ticket submission (Additional Support Options); alternatively, WHM may also be used via the following menu path: WHM: Main >> Support >> Support Center >> Contact cPanel. If submitting a ticket, when available, please send me your ticket ID number (e.g., via a PM) so I may follow-up internally. Thank you in advance. :)

    Sorry for bumping, but I'm looking for a way to chown mailman archives to be owned by the accounts which generated them, because since cP v11.25 Release 46156, cPanel "Dropped usage of mailman_chown_archives to address a security concern", and because of that, the disk space used by the archive files is not counting towards the account usage quota anymore, and that's no cool. This, together with the fact that mailman bandwidth is not being counted for the account bandwidth usage makes a great FAIL, because webhost cannot limit abuse or usage made by mailman, which in some cases may be a big resource hog.

    PLEASE, a solution will be nice.

    Well, since the file mailman_chown_archives doesn't even exist anymore, have you tried removing that relavent line

    Code:
    0 2 * * * /scripts/mailman_chown_archives
    from the file /var/spool/cron/root ?
