Fedora and Mailman Issues

I decided to get this on here so it gets index by the engines and others can find it if they run into the same thing. Hopefully it’s useful for someone.

If you run into a problem where the web interface/ui for mailman just returns a bunch of jibberish and appears to just be returning the text content of the binary cgi’s in the mailman cgi-bin, it probably means you aren’t loading mod_cgi. Turns out Fedora needs mod_cgi loaded for those to be treated as cgis.

After that, alter the permissions on your /var/log/mailman/error file to allow more write access (you’ll notice odd errors in your httpd error logs if you don’t). After that, just follow the errors in /var/log/mailman/error – you’ll see permissions errors, of which you’ll need to ensure you set permissions on all the files it errors out on. Setting the sticky bit on your lists, /etc/mailman, and a couple other places may prove useful, and keep some of those errors from coming back when you add lists in the future. Voila – working Mailman!

Jesse Stay has been a pioneer in the space of social media marketing since before it was called "social media marketing". Originally a software developer, Jesse built a tool called SocialToo.com which helped brands like Pepsi, Brittany Spears, and MC Hammer grow their social media presence, and before he knew it brands were coming to him for help to grow their presence in very unique ways. His tool was featured on almost every tech blog and even mainstream news sites like New York Times, Techcrunch, and Mashable. Jesse also spent a brief period working FOR Facebook, Inc., helping them to build out their documentation to help companies integrate Facebook Connect into their websites and mobile apps. Jesse took his skills and helped the LDS Church kick off most of its social media programs. While there he helped launch the award-winning "I'm a Mormon" marketing campaign with global reach worldwide in the millions of views and followers. Jesse established new global programs at the Church to further grow its reach amongst both members and non-members of the Church, working with every department of the Church, also including entities like the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Brigham Young University. He also helped the Church navigate its voice and presence during the Mitt Romney Presidential campaign due to the significant attention the Church was getting at the time. He established the social media advertising techniques and strategies employed at Deseret Digital Media growing over 20 million fans across their news properties in just 6 months, and was featured on AdWeek for his success. As founder and Principal of Stay N Alive, Jesse has developed very unique techniques in social media advertising to help organizations grow presences, within months on minimal budgets, into hundreds of thousands of highly relevant and engaging fans and followers. He designed and teaches social media advertising at LDS Business College. He has helped grow sales, and has a belief that yes, you CAN measure social! Jesse has been featured as one of 10 entrepreneurs to follow on Twitter (next to Biz Stone and Ev Williams, founders of Twitter) by Entrepreneur magazine. Jesse has written 9 books on the topic of social media marketing and development, including Google+ Marketing For Dummies and Facebook All In One For Dummies, and eats, lives, and drinks social media with a personal combined presence of over 600,000 followers on his personal social profiles.
