Location: ?
 
 
Servers: hosted1, collab1
 
 
Purpose: Provides mailing list services.
 
 
== Description ==
 
 
Mailing list services for Fedora Hosted projects are located on the hosted1.fedoraproject.org server.  Fedora Project mailing lists are on collab1.
 
 
== Common Tasks ==
 
 
=== Creating a new mailing list ===
 
 
1. Log into hosted1 or collab1
 
1. sudo /usr/local/bin/fedora-mailing-list-setup
 
 
<pre>
 
[you@hosted1 ~] $ sudo /usr/local/bin/fedora-mailing-list-setup
 
Password:
 
Project name: project
 
List name: project-devel
 
Admin username: username # This is the admin user for the list.
 
FAS Username: yourfasusername # This is the admin adding the lists username
 
FAS Password:                                # This is the fas password for the admin user adding the list.
 
[you@hosted1 ~] $
 
</pre>
 
 
== Troubleshooting and Resolution ==
 
 
 
 
== List Administration ==
 
 
The mailman site password for hosted1 can be found it /root/mm_sitepass
 
 
<pre>
 
sudo cat /root/mm_sitepass
 
</pre>
 
 
The site password can be used to reset lists admin passwords if required.
 
Note: If you change the site password, please update this file.
 
 
 
== ML password reset ==
 
 
When a user has requested their mailman password be reset go to the mailing list admin interface at:
 
 
https://fedorahosted.org/mailman/admin/<MailingListName>
 
 
Use the site-admin password (see above) to log in, set the password to something.  Then email the list admin the new password as well as asking them to change it.
 
 
=== Restart Procedure ===
 
If the server needs to be restarted mailman should come back on it's own.  Otherwise each service on it can be restarted:
 
 
<pre>
 
sudo service mailman restart
 
sudo service postfix restart
 
</pre>
 
 
=== How to delete a mailing list ===
 
 
Delete a list, but keep the archives
 
<pre>
 
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist <listname>
 
</pre>
 
 
Delete a list and its archives
 
<pre>
 
sudo /usr/lib/mailman/bin/rmlist -a <listname>
 
</pre>
