ClamAV - Updating from versions lower than 0.90.0

 - This is archive documentation, which means it is not supported or valid for recent versions of Zimbra Collaboration.

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

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/

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/

Add option: ScriptedUpdates yes

cd /opt/zimbra/conf/

cp clamd.conf

cp freshclam.conf

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 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!
