I would like to add Anti Virus to my server to check incoming/outgoing emails for viruses, and I believe ClamAV would do this nicely.

Am I correct in thinking that I must upgrade my Cpanel/WHM to the 'Pro' version first before installing the 'add-on' ClamAV' ???

Is either of these likely to cause any problems, or is it straight forward ??

Thanks in advance,
Daniel

Go on, have a guess
Straightforward as selecting both options in WHM > Addon Modules > and hitting the Save button - at least, it should be :)

Are there any known issues (that you know of) with either of these addons ??

Thanks

Also, anyone know if the ClamAV addon requires the 'Pro' version of Cpanel ??

Thanks

You do need the Pro addon to get the user portion in cPanel I believe. You shouldn't have any problems with cPanel Pro. The clamavconnector is usually fine and if there are any problems, they'll probably have been posted on the forums in the past with solutions.

Hi Chirpy,

Thanks for your reply.

I have just done it, and so far everything seems to be working well. I have sent myself a few 'Eircar' test viruses, and they seem to have been blocked OK.

I notice in the cpanel, there is an option for users to virus scan their emails, webspace, etc.

Am I right though in thinking ALL emails (incoming and outgoing) are being automatically scanned anyway ??

Thanks again
Daniel

hm

I´m with same doubt...
Virus Scan at CPANEL is working fine, but, seems not scanning automatically without the use of Virus Scanner interface.

Some Eicar Virus are not filtered without Virus Scanner use.
