    How can I move a live mailing list from to

    I have a lot of mailinglists at, but since we started using a new webservice all our webtraffic now is being directed to another server through a A-record. Mail and subdomains are still handled at the old server. But, as a result of setting up the A-record, I can no longer access the mailman admin-interface.

    I can change to and this way access the admin interface, however when I use the feature "Tend to pending moderator requests" the old link is back resulting in me not being able to release moderated e-mails to the list.

    My solution for this problem is to move all active mailinglists to That way I can access the admin interface without being redirected to the new webserver. But how do I do it? I have a lot of lists and lots of subscribers and have finetuned the settings so much, that I do not want to start over from scratch again. Any help?

    Best regards

    Please try using the following command:

    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman/bin/withlist -l -r fix_url -a -v
    Note that if this works well, you will need to add it to the /scripts/postupcp file to ensure it runs after each cPanel update.

    Thank you.
