The mailman site password for hosted1 can be found it /root/mm_pass
+
 
+
<pre>
+
sudo cat /root/mm_pass
+
</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>
+
service mailman restart
+
service postfix restart
+
</pre>
+
