I'm trying to set up a Mailman website at present at mailman.puzzling.org
This is a virtual domain on 188.8.131.52
Here's the relevant sections of the httpd.conf:
ServerAdmin mary at creative.net.au
Alias /pipermail/ "/home/mailman/archives/public/"
Alias /images/ "/usr/src/mailman-2.0/misc/"
ScriptAlias / "/home/mailman/cgi-bin/"
Allow from all
CustomLog logs/mail-puzzling-access_log common
This means that http://mailman.puzzling.org/listinfo and

section of the VirtualHost config. But it doesn't work.
I tried setting it up as
AddHandler cgi-script *
and so on, but this dies very badly with a rather garbled warning

So how can I keep the ScriptAlias line and still convince apache
to read index.html (which is just a symlink to listinfo btw)?
