Configuring mailman (or more so apache FOR mailman)

Taken from the mailman 'INSTALL' file

- Configure your web server to give $prefix/cgi-bin permission to
run CGI scripts. You probably need to be root to do this.

The line you should add might look something like the following
(with the real absolute directory substituted for $prefix, of

Exec /mailman/* $prefix/cgi-bin/*
ScriptAlias /mailman/ $prefix/cgi-bin/

Consult your web server's documentation for details.

does this mean (as I consulted the apache docs) httpd.conf?

I know, mail man is terrible, but it's not my system, im just learning it
