4.3 Error updating file
I've just made a list called TEST.LIST. When I tried to add subscribers, I got the following error:
>>> Error X'0028005B' updating file F:\listserv\main\TEST.LIST <<<
-> Severity: Error
-> Facility: LFxxx routines
-> Abstract: File not opened in update mode
-> I/O mode: Record read + update
This error generally occurs when a list file has been manually inserted into LISTSERV's main directory (e.g., created with vi, etc.) and LISTSERV was not restarted before a command arrived for the list (e.g., an ADD or DELETE command). LISTSERV must be restarted to reformat the plain text file before the list can be used.
