This is one of the numerous web interface to browse archives of ezmlm. Of course you first need of install ezmlm system and its admin web interface here

alternative use could be http://untroubled.org/ezmlm-browse/ but no contribs available


Some years ago (2.5) User:PicsOne has published a how-to in the forum http://forums.contribs.org/index.php?topic=27460.0 for install mharc mailist web publisher in sme6. Now I have found a little but good app to do the same: publish ezmlm archives on the web beautify.


The author is Alessandro Ranellucci and the aplication is ezmlm-www and can be found at http://ezmlm-www.sourceforge.net/


Contrib 10:
The latest version of smeserver-ezmlm-www is available in the SME repository, click on the version number(s) for more information.


suggested first install smeserver-ezmlm-web to administer your mailing lists using the server-manager and ezmlm-web see ezmlm

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install smeserver-ezmlm-www

Of course you must have installed and configured ezmlm as described here: Ezmlm

If you do not have the Dag repository configured you should do so:

You need to activate the Dag reposity before installing this contrib.

see dag repository

Install the perl dependancy:

yum --enablerepo=dag install perl-Mail-Box perl-User-Identity perl-TimeDate perl-Email-Simple perl-Plucene perl-KinoSearch

Install ezmlm-www:

yum --enablerepo=smecontribs install perl-Mail-Ezmlm-Archive smeserver-ezmlm-www

Basic Configuration

unless you do the following step no mailing list will display on your public web interface

go to your ezmlm-web admin interface in the option/archive section to configure your mailing lists to "Archive mailing list messages" and "Index mailing list messages for WWW archive access"

then with cli you should do

db accounts setprop MYLIST DisplayArchives enabled 
signal-event smeserver-ezmlm-www-update

then run


and voila, next a cron task will handle the update hourly

if one of your list is displaying but show no month, this is because it was not previously archived / indexed , the workaround :

ezmlm-archive  /home/e-smith/files/ezmlm/lists/MYLIST

Access at http://yourserver/mailinlist and see if run ok.

Note that indexing is done incrementally, so it will be faster when just updating.

Advanced Configuration

here are some properties available to configure your list for the mailinglist type of the db accounts. They are also all available using the web admin panel provided by the contribution [Ezmlm].

property default values description available in manager
DisplayArchives disabled enabled/disabled list or not the archive in the www interface
conceal_senders enabled enabled/disabled Set this to enabled if you want domains to be replaced by

'...' in e-mail addresses to prevent spammers to read them.

Description string Verbose description of list (for indexing purposes). yes
default_sorting thread thread date or subject
show_html enabled enabled/disabled Set this to enabled if you want to display HTML messages.
highlight enabled enabled/disabled Set this to enabled if you want to highlight parts of messages.

such as replies, signatures, URLs.

show_inline_images enabled enabled/disabled Set this to enabled if you want to display inline images

instead of just a link.

subscription_info disabled enabled/disabled Set this to enabled if you want some info about

subscribing and unsubscribing to be put on main list page.

search disabled enabled/disabled display the search box.
db accounts setprop MYMAILINGLIST search enabled
signal-event smeserver-ezmlm-www

here are some properties against the ezmlm key in the db configuration

property default values

config setprop ezmlm lang tr ListServerName 'My personal mailing list browsable web archive'

The End

This app can run with mod_perl, but I can't do it. Please, read the readme file, and if you can, please tell me howto, and then I update the package.

This is my first RPM package. If you have found a bug, please tell me about that.
