Posted on 2006-05-05

I'm a novice Linux user that has been assigned to implement a Web Server using CentOS 4.1
The goal is to create a List Server using MailMan. But I'll need to take this one step at a time. So if any one could help me out or refer me to a good Setup Guide that would be great.
My first goal is to Setup Apache

MailMan is already installed as well as Apache. I just need to Setup them up correctly.

    As you are new to linux, I would suggest that you take a look around The Linux Doccumentation Project to see what's out there.

    Specifically for what you are doing I would navigate to and select the hyperlink for the version that is installed on your distro (Probably 2.2: From there, you will find all of the information you want about configuring apache.CentOS is fairly good about giving you a working webserver, so there really shouldn't be much you have to do in the way of initial configuration. If you execute "service httpd start" from the command line as root, the web server should just come up.

    As far as MailMan is concerned , here is a nice little document that should have the answers you need:

    Just pick it up at section (4) if you already have the program installed.

    #yum install httpd
    configure your apache for secure, and then, install mailman...

    Has anyone tried using Mailman with Sendmail?
    I've set it up but it doesn't seem to be sending to the users on the list
    or myself as the admin.
