    Hi,

    I just went through the process of restoring one of my servers through the plesk backup utility. When I restored the dump file, none of the mailing lists were there. Is there something I am missing, do I need to be doing a manual backup of the mailman dir or what?

    Thanks

    [SOLVED] Mailing lists not backed up

    self do self have :) so after a little more inspection, i found that psadump actually tries to backup the mailman mailing lists, but that it doesn't look for them where they are, in MAILMAN_VAR_D (/var/lib/mailman in our installation), but in MAILMAN_ROOT_D (/usr/lib/mailman in our installation - see /etc/psa/psa.conf for your values). after i had already created a symlink from /usr/lib/mailman/archives to /var/lib/mailman/archives to solve mailing lists archives cannot be found, which resulted in the mailman archives being backupped, i only had to do the same for the lists:

    ln -s /var/lib/mailman/lists /usr/lib/mailman/lists

    my question: why doesn't psa checks/creates these symlinks? looks like a bug to me.

    hope that helps anyone having the same problems.
