ClamAV - Updating from versions lower than 0.90.0

Revision as of 22:37, 6 May 2007 by Scottnelson (talk | contribs)

New Version of CLAMAV is out today - Ver 0.90

http://www.clamav.net/

ver 0.90 has some new features and as such, a couple of new option switches.

With the above "Howto: Update ClamAV" instructions in mind and also assuming you are upgrading from version 0.88.7. If upgrading from something else other than 0.88.7 , substitute your version for 0.88.7 mentioned below.

Also 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/clamav-0.90/etc/

copy: clamd.conf clamd.conf.org

copy: freshclam.conf freshclam.conf.org

copy: /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.88.7/etc/clamd.conf ../../clamav-0.90/etc/

copy: /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.88.7/etc/freshclam.conf ../../clamav-0.90/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/etc/

diff clamd.conf clamd.conf.org to see changes.


Modified /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/clamd.conf with 'LogTime yes' and 'LogSyslog yes' above.

For /opt/zimbra/clamav-0.90/etc/freshclam.conf I added the line:

ScriptedUpdates yes

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!
