Installing Majordomo
To install Majordomo, connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following.

  1. Install Perl5 on your Virtual Server.

  2. Install the Majordomo software. Connect to your Virtual Server via Telnet or SSH and do the following, depending on your Virtual Server O/S.

  3. Change the directory permissions for ~/usr, ~/usr/local, ~/usr/local/majordomo, and ~/usr/local/majordomo/Lists to 755:

    % chmod 755 ~/usr ~/usr/local ~/usr/local/majordomo \

  4. In the majordomo.cf file, change the definition of the $whereami variable from YourCompany.COM to your domain name (see line 2). You can do this by using pico, a simple, easy to use UNIX text editor:

    % pico -w ~/usr/local/majordomo/majordomo.cf

    Feel free to edit any other configuration variable in usr/local/majordomo/majordomo.cf to your liking.

  5. Create E-Mail Aliases something like the following.

    # Majordomo Stuff
    majordomo: "|/usr/local/majordomo/wrapper majordomo"
    owner-majordomo: list_manager_e-mail_address
    majordomo-owner: list_manager_e-mail_address
