INSTALL Normal file

@ -0,0 +1,97 @@
The following notes will guide you through the installation of ezmlm-web:
0. IMPORTANT: you need the perl module Mail::Ezmlm and others to use
ezmlm-web! The file README contains the list of necessary modules.
1. Get ezmlm-web and extract the archive:
tar xzf ezmlm-web-2.2.tar.gz
2. Copy ezmlm-web.cgi to some publically readable directory. It does not
have to be in a path accessible to your web server, but any user with a
mailing list must be able to run it (Check the read and execute rights
on both the file and directory). We put our copy in "/usr/local/bin".
At the top of you can will probably have to change the
$ENV{'PATH'} variable. Be careful about what you set as the path. Too
much is a security risk and too little will cause the script to
malfunction. Version 2.0 requires that the following programs be
accessible in your path: mv, rm
3. Edit the ezmlmwebrc file and alter the variables to suit your
particular system.
Be careful about the $LIST_DIR variable. This script assumes that all
users store their mailing lists in the same sub directory of the home
directory (eg ~/lists). You can override this for an individual user
by recompiling the C wrapper to call ezmlm-web.cgi with a -d option.
Other configurable options are documented in the ezmlmwebrc file
itself. I have tried to keep the amount of information that you need to
supply to a minimum and also make reasonable guesses about default
Finally, copy the ezmlmwebrc file and the "lang" directory to one of
the following places:
- /etc/ezmlm
- the home directory of the user that runs ezmlm-web.cgi
- the directory, that contains your ezmlm-web.cgi file
4. Edit the index.c file and change the path to the path of your copy
of ezmlm-web.cgi. Then compile this file. You can do this by issuing
the command; gcc -o index.cgi index.c
5. For every user/virtual host that needs to manage mailing lists, you
need to create a SUID (user not root!!) copy of index.cgi (see
chmod(1) for details). These need to reside somewhere accessible by
the web server. I suggest that you put them in a sub directory (see
about security) of each user/virtual host's home directory (eg
/home/luser/public_html/ezmlm for Apache on Redhat).
The copies don't actually have to be called index.cgi, but it is nice
for web servers that can resolve a cgi script as an index page (see the
srm.conf file in Apache). It is important to make sure that whichever
directory you choose to put them can i: Execute CGI Scripts and ii: Be
access controlled (here I mean both web and user access) by some method
(eg .htaccess, access.conf for Apache).
6. Install some method of securing access to the page. The following
information is applicable to Apache web servers ... Detailed
information on user authentication can be obtained from the Apache
documentation ( and ApacheWeek
6.1 Ensure that your Apache setup will allow .htaccess file to control
access in the directory that contains. This is controlled by the
AllowOverride tag in access.conf. (Also ensure you have the
necessary Apache modules installed)
6.2 Create a htpasswd file. This is done using the htpasswd command that
comes with Apache. Its command line syntax is;
htpasswd [-c] passwordfile username
You need to put the passwordfile somewhere that is not accessible by
people through the web, and create an entry for each user you want
to have access ... See the ApacheWeek article for more details.
6.3 Create a .htaccess file in the directory that contains index.cgi.
Note that using Apache's built in access control, you can only control
access to directories, not individual files, hence the need for a
sub-directory in step 5.
The format of the .htaccess file should be along the lines of this;
AuthName EZ Mailing List Manager
AuthType Basic
AuthUserFile /path/to/passwordfile
require valid-user # or require user username
Again, see the ApacheWeek article for details.
7. Test the installation through the web. You should be asked for a
username and password (supplied in 6.2) and then be presented with a
screen entitled EZ Mailing List Manger. You can then try to create and
edit mailing lists ... Have Fun :)
If you have any problems, then you can:
- take a look at
- send me an email:

II. Some Background
The need for ezmlm-web arose from the fact that we host many student
societies on our system. These societies usually have a virtual host for web
and email, which is administered by a computer rep from the society. These
computer reps often have little or no knowledge of Unix and so we needed a
user friendly system that would let the create and maintain mailing lists
(such as,, etc).
Since I am never keen to re-invent the wheel, I had a look at Steve Peterson's
script (, which allows people to subscribe
and unsubscribe from mailing lists using a form->email gateway. This is fine
for putting on a web page saying "here come and join our mailing list", but
doesn't really allow you to administrate a list.
Security of mailing lists was a concern, as we really didn't want
unauthorised people to be able to alter some users list. Ezmlm-web itself
implements no security checks (apart from un-tainting input) and so relies
on the web server to do this (re-inventing the wheel again :). We use an
Apache webserver, so one can control access to a directory using a .htaccess
file or in the access.conf file. ApacheWeek have a good article on doing
this at I also give examples
later in this document.
This version of ezmlm-web is based to a large extent on previous
versions that I have developed. It has however been totally re-written to
make use of the Mail::Ezmlm perl module I wrote. At the same time it was
updated and extended to include the new features of ezmlm-idx. It includes
many new features that have been suggested to me over the last few months,
and hopefully is now useful to a much larger group of people.
Since 02005 ezmlm-web is maintained by Lars Kruse (
Only minor improvements had to be implemented to keep the already fully
functional ezmlm-web up to date.
III. Requirements
This version of ezmlm-web requires the following;
* qmail v1.03
* ezmlm v0.53 (idx v0.40)
* Perl v5.004 and the following modules;
+ Mail::Ezmlm v0.03
+ Mail::Address v1.15
+ CGI v2.6
+ CGI::Carp v1.06
+ DB_File v1.65
+ Getopt::Std v4.1
+ File::Find v?
+ File::Copy v2.02
The version number indicates the version of the module that ezmlm-web was
developed with. Earlier versions may work, but then they haven't been
tested. Have a look on,, and for anything you are missing.
IV. Files
In this distribution you should find 8 files;
README This file. Provides some background information.
Not needed to run ezmlm-web.
INSTALL Notes on installation. Not needed to run ezmlm-web.
CHANGES The change history. Not needed to run ezmlm-web
TODO This file is a list of things I intend doing in future
versions of ezmlm-web. Not needed to run ezmlm-web.
ezmlm-web.cgi The ezmlm-web script proper. This program requires that
you have perl5 installed on your machine and that your web
server is capable of running CGI scripts.
index.c A C wrapper to allow ezmlm-web.cgi to run suid. Not
strictly necessary if your setup allows perl scripts to
run suid, but I prefer using wrappers anyway. It needs to
be edited and compiled to suit your system. Not needed to
run ezmlm-web.
ezmlmwebrc This is the configuration file for ezmlm-web. All options
are explained in this example file. You will need this
file to run ezmlm-web.
htaccess.sample A sample Apache .htaccess file for controlling access to
the mailing lists. If you use another web server, you will
have to work this bit out for yourself.
webusers.sample A sample webusers file for multi-level access control.
The directory "lang" contains the language files. You will need at least the
one, that you have choosen in "ezmlmwebrc" by the option "HTML_LANGUAGE".
V. Notes
* There is a function to delete mailing lists, but I really don't like the
idea. The only reason I put it in is that bvi@rucus asked for it.
If you set $UNSAFE_RD = 0 (the default) in the config section, the
ezmlm-web won't actually delete the list. In this case it moves the <list>
to .<list> and all the associated .qmail files to a sub-directory called
deleted.qmail/ (In the users home directory. This is by far a safer way
(since you can restore lists) and therefore I recommend it.
* The HTML interface has been tested using Nutscrape, Internet Exploder, and
Lynx. If anyone uses anything else and has problems, please let me know.
* I suggest that you make use of custom ezmlmwebrc files rather than using
the -d command line switches - it makes fault diagnosis easier ...
* Please see the section on languages below.
VI. Multi-Level Access
Ezmlm-web has a multi-level access system. This depends on a file called
webusers being present in $LIST_DIR. If the file is not present, then any
valid user has access to all lists. If, however, this file exists a number
of constraints come into place.
- The webusers file is scanned for either the list name (case insensitive) or
an ALL (case sensitive) entry.
- The list entry (or ALL) is scanned for the current user (as set in
$REMOTE_USER) or an ALL entry.
- If any valid match is made, then the user is allowed to edit the list.
Otherwise the user is politely told to go away ;-)
If list creation is allowed and the webusers file exists, then the person who
creates the list is the default owner. As of yet there is no way to create users
through the web interface, but I intend to do this eventually.
The format of a webusers file is as follows;
list1: user1, user2, user3
ALL: user1, user2
list2: ALL
ie; listname colon (:) and a comma (,) separated list of users. Spaces are
ignored but each list must appear on a new line.
Once this file exists, the ezmlm-web script will allow the list users to
configure their access lists along with any other options.
You can permit some users to create lists by adding a line similar to the
following to your webusers file:
ALLOW_CREATE: user2, user3
If there is no line starting with "ALLOW_CREATE:" in the webusers file, then
no one will be allowed to create lists. This behaviour is new for ezmlm-web
since version 2.2. To stay compatible to old installations, the commandline
option "-c" for ezmlm-web.cgi will still allow everyone to create lists. The
use of this option is deprecated, since the line "ALLOW_CREATE: ALL" provides
the same effect in a cleaner way.
VII. Language Portablity
One of the great new features of version 2.0 is that it is essentially
language independant (okay, not quite, but is 99% of the way there). Most of
the fixed strings, help, etc is defined in the files of lang directory.
Of course you can change them or create a new translation.
The language can be selected in ezmlmwebrc with the "HTML_LANGUAGE" option.
If anyone gets round to writing full templates for languages I would
appreciate it if you would do two things;
Firstly, make them public and announce them on the
mailing list so that others may benefit.
Secondly, please mail me a copy ( so that I may use
them in any future releases of ezmlm-web.
VIII. Bugs && Bug Reports
I don't know of any bugs, but then this is a rewrite and a first release. It
has been tested reasonably well, but not exhaustively. I know it works on
FreeBSD 4.0-STABLE, FreeBSD 3.4-RELEASE, RedHat 5.1 and Redhat 6.0 all using
an Apache web server, but I would be interested to know whether it works on
other OSs and with other web servers. This version is far less dependent on
the OS than previous versions so I don't see any reason why it shouldn't.
Please mail bug reports and comments to

UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.1 to ezmlm-web 2.2
1) Creating of new lists is now controlled by a line in the webusers file instead
of a commandline switch for ezmlm-web.cgi.
necessary changes:
- optional: remove switch "-c" when calling ezmlm-web.cgi (take a look at index.c)
- optional: add a line like "ALLOW_CREATE: john, myra" to the webusers file
2) The location of the webusers file is now defined in ezmlmwebrc. (default: $LIST_DIR/webusers)
necessary changes:
- optional: add a line like "$WEBUSERS_FILE = /home/ml/webusers" to ezmlmwebrc
3) A german translation is available.
- optional: include "lang/" in ezmlmwebrc (there you can also remove the english definitions)
or copy the new ezmlmwebrc :)
UPGRADING ezmlm-web 2.0 to ezmlm-web 2.1
There are no major changes that need to be made in order to upgrade. All
that is necessary is to add two new lines to your ezmlmwebrc ... In the top
section of the file add
and in the %HELPER section, you need to add
addaddressfile => 'or you may enter the filename of a plain text file containing multiple RFC822 email addresses, one per line',
(or just copy the new ezmlmwebrc :)
Have a look for these two lines in the new ezmlmwebrc included in this
distribution if you are unsure of how/where to put these.
