  • ClamAv not starting

    Hi
    If you have had a warning over clamav not working today, then the issue is likely to be in maldet.
    Top resolve this issue, I did a maldet reinstall as follows:
    SSH into server
    service clamd stop
    cd (to folder where you extrated maldet)
    ./install.sh
    (onscreen you should see where it downloads the latest version, and also the hash values have changed)
    maldet --update-sigs
    maldet --update-ver
    vi /usr/local/maldetect/conf.maldet (please set config as you need)
    maldet -m users
    service clamd start
    That should correct clamav, and clamav start normally, with maldet running normally
    I hope that helps
    Many thanks
    John
