    Hi,

    /etc/redhat-release:CloudLinux Server release 6.9 (Igor Volk)
    /usr/local/cpanel/version:11.64.0.20
    /var/cpanel/envtype:standard
    CPANEL=release

    I had to cleanup the temp file this morning to make space and following that started to received error about clamsv service not starting:


    Then got to the log and uninstalled and reinstalled clamav Version: 0.99.2-1.cp1164.
    But now getting this error at startup:

    Service Error
    (XID ddqq3a) The “clamd” service failed to start.

    Startup Log

The /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/clamav/bytecode.cld database is older and will not be loaded, you should manually remove it from the database directory.

    clamd has failed. Contact your system administrator if the service does not automagically recover.

    Once I edited the rfxn.hdb and removed the last line (that was malformed) and started a fresh update using:
    /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/freshclam

    Got a new error remaining:
    LibClamAV Warning: cli_loadyara: empty database file

    Hello,
    I would recommend reinstalling the cPanel clamav rpm when this last error occurs. One way to do this is to run these commands:
    Code:
    rpm -e --nodeps --justdb cpanel-clamav-0.99.2-1.cp1164.x86_64 cpanel-perl-524-File-Scan-ClamAV-1.95-1.cp1162.x86_64 cpanel-clamav-virusdefs-0.99.2-1.cp1164.x86_64 ; /scripts/check_cpanel_rpms --fix
