    A while back we changed the hostname on a server that has Suexec disabled. The problem is that the publicly-advertised mailman mailing lists page still shows the old hostname. The entries for /etc/hosts , /etc/sysconfig/network and the A entry all reflect the new hostname. Where can I correct the hostname for the publicly-advertised mailman mailing lists?

    TIA

    Found the problem..
    The updates were set to manual and a /scripts/upcp updated the hostname :)

    This is a huge pain..... to say the least.
    Because if it HAD suexec, there are tons of links that were manually edited by the script that turns ON suexec and instantiates all the mailman suexec fixes.

    To roll back is very painful.
    I would suggest backing up your /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/mailman dir (or just the lists/archives), what have you, and then wipe out that mailman dir within 3rdparty altogether.

    Make sure suexec is DEFINITELY disabled.

    And then upcp and cpanel will rebuild mailman within that directory with DEFAULTS (aka- no suexec hooks within)

    Just make sure the scripts in question within /scripts are NOT executable. (the evil scripts that can tell mailman suexec is back again)

    Finally you just have to bring over the lists and archives directories and pray everything holds together.

    It's risky but it's a lot less painful than trying to find everything that was warped by suexec when it used to be enabled.

    no guarantees or promises here ;)
