ClamAV - Updating from versions lower than 0.90.0

From Zimbra :: Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Version 0.90.2 of CLAMAV is out as of May 6th, 2007.

http://www.clamav.net/

Ver 0.90.2 has some new features and as such, a couple of new option switches.

With the "Howto Update ClamAV" instructions in mind and also assuming you are upgrading from version 0.87.1 through 0.88.7 .


Changed the following:

vi ../conf/clamd.conf.in

change option: LogTime to LogTime yes ( was just LogTime by itself before )

change option: LogSyslog to LogSyslog yes ( was just LogSyslog by itself before )


vi ../conf/freshclam.conf.in

Add option: ScriptedUpdates yes


cd /opt/zimbra/conf/

cp clamd.conf clamd.conf.org

cp freshclam.conf freshclam.conf.org

cp clamd.conf ../../clamav-0.90.2/etc/

cp freshclam.conf ../../clamav-0.90.2/etc/

(You just don't want to use clamav defaults but use your previous config with zimbra specific config stuff )

For the curious: cd /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90.2/etc/

diff /opt/zimbra/conf/clamd.conf clamd.conf.org to see changes.


ScriptedUpdates means that clamav gets the just the virus DB changes and not the whole file each time.

Verify owner is zimbra:zimbra again.

Restart as zimbra user ( su zimbra ) zmcontrol stop then zmcontrol start and check the /opt/zimbra/log/clamd.log to see if all is right with the world again.

Test test test!
