    Hi,

    Although the tickbox "Install and Keep Updated" is checked in WHM, ClamAVconnector (cPanel->Addon modules) needs to be manually uninstalled and installed again to get it updated. Is this a known problem?

    I'm using "WHM 10.8.0 cPanel 10.8.2-R119, CentOS 4.3 x86_64 - WHM X v3.1.0".

    Thanks.

    It auto-updates so long as you auto-update cpanel. If you have cpanel updates set to manual then it won't update the addon scripts automatically either. You don't have to uninstall it, by the way. Just press submit at the bottom of the screen again.

    Code:

    Hi,

    The problem is that cPanel is still offering version 0.88.3-1.7 and not yet the latest release.

    Regards.

    they cant just update it without first testing that it still works with clamavconnector, hence why they are a little behind.

    Hi,

    That's completely understandable. The update has only been out a day...
    Last update it took cPanel more than a week to release the new version.

    Edit : Have checked it via the Logwatch e-mails. It took them 25 days instead of "more than a week"!

    I do agree that the updates are a little slow at times, but at least you know by the time you get them they are reasonably stable

    You can say that again... :D

    Hope they will release an update sooner than the last one though, because of the discovered security(!) problems with previous releases...

    cPanel has not yet updated the ClamAV component...
    You'll have to remain patient untill they've updated the component... sometimes it takes a long time and sometimes within a few days... you may never know...
    In the mean time your servers will be running a somewhat outdated antivirus program. If you do not want to wait, you 'll have to update it yourself manually...

    That's a capital V

    or follow this path :

    Code:
    WHM -> cPanel -> Addon Modules
    
    The 3rd box should show the following (right now) :

    Code:
    Name: clamavconnector 
    Author: cPanel Inc.
    Installed Version: 0.90-1.9.3
    Version: 0.90-1.9.3
    Description: Virus Protection for Email and Filemanager Uploads !!BETA VERSION!!
    Price: free
