When restarting exim, I get this:

I went to clamav.net but got lost. How do I fix this? Idiot instructions, please.

I went to clamav.net and couldn't figure out how to upgrade it. I have no idea if it was installed as a package or from source. Is there a way to find out?

This is weird. :confused:

[~]# rpm -q clamav
package clamav is not installed
No, it is not weird. The cPanel does NOT use the RPM package for ClamAv. Update your cPanel: /scripts/upcp --force
Login to the WHM, un-install and then re-install ClamAv.

Not really, just means you're probably using the clamavconnector. Before I put you on this path, let me first recommend getting a true admin to do this for you!

Ok - having given you the warning: Check in /usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/ for a clamavconnector directory. If it's there, you can then wget the new version into that directory to install it.

Code:
cd /usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector*
wget http://umn.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.88.7.tar.gz
Next you need to edit the install script in that same directory and update the "AVV=" line to reflect the 0.88.7 version. Then you can run the install script.

Code:
./install
If you wait a bit, they'll have it upgrade automatically within your nightly upcp script run I'm sure. That warning is only telling you that the updates available for the clam signatures are for a new version, not that yours is no longer working. :)

Is clamavconnecter still being maintained?

Hi,

If you wait a bit, they'll have it upgrade automatically within your nightly upcp script run I'm sure.
I wouldn't bank on that - 0.88.5 is the latest version available via the clamavconnector AFAIK - I've been waiting for over a month for that to be updated...

Can one of the cPanel staff comment on whether clamavconnector is still being maintained (since it's now way out of date)?

Thanks,
Dave.
