Trouble setting board's Group Mailing List

Posted:30 Dec 2008 (23:35 UTC)
# Version: 2.1.0 beta
{W} = mysubdomain.mydomain.com/mypath
{H} = home/mydomain/www/mysubdomain/mypath


How do I set my board's Board => List Configuration so it sends its new posts to my mailing list (mymailinglist@mydomain.com)?

My settings at {W}/boards/mailing_list.php?b=2 are:
Board => List Configuration
  • Mailing List Address myboardname@mydomain.com
  • Administrator Password myadminpw


But after pressing the Create List button, I get this error at the top of the page --

Warning: fopen(/etc/aliases) function.fopen: failed to open stream: Permission denied in /{H}/util/mailman_lib.php on line 76
Warning: Cannot modify header information - headers already sent by (output started at /{H}/util/mailman_lib.php:76) in /{H}/themes/BitThemes.php on line 1480


and this error right above Board => List Configuration --

Could not open /etc/aliases for appending.


My settings at {W}/kernel/admin/index.php?page=boards are:

Board to List Sync

  • Email Host mydomain.com
  • Administrator Email myadminusername@mydomain.com
  • Mailman bin Path /usr/lib/sendmail <- the path my host's set for Sendmail


My host has only the Sendmail software installed.
