Change URL for submit buttons

Bug #265975 reported by Windl on 2003-10-20
Affects Status Importance Assigned to Milestone
GNU Mailman

Bug Description

I have a special configuration, where the CGI scripts
have problems:
the hostname is like "" with two
ethernet interfaces, each having its own name like
"" and "". I also
have an alias like "" that is
intended to be used as virtual host for the CGI interface.
However not every URL in the CGI pages are correct. At
the moment, I cannot submit administrative changes,
because the SUBMIT button uses "" (which
has no address record associated with).
It also seems that access via the virtual host name
does not display the mailing lists being configured.
Where are the places I should look at to change URLs?
I think the submit buttons should have an URL...

I found out that re-creating the mailing list auto-magically
fixed the issue. That's good. However it's not quite clear
which config variable gets misused to form the submit URL;
is it the NNTP host?

If you set up the virtual hosting support properly, and if
you visit the pages via the right virtual host url, Mailman
should use that to form the basis of the various urls. It
will set web_page_url when you create the list. If this
variable isn't set right, you'll need to use bin/withlist to
fix it, as you cannot change this variable through the web.
