    When restarting exim, I get this:

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

    You need to upgrade clamAV - do you know if it was installed as a package or from source?

    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?

    /scripts/upcp might get you there automatically if they've included the latest clam in the updates. You can do rpm -q clamav and see what you get.

    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. :)

    Might not work yet, as the new version of clam was just released today I believe. Not sure how fast cPanel works on aligning the connector with current version...

    Is clamavconnecter still being maintained?

    Hi,

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    Can one of the cPanel staff comment on whether clamavconnector is still being maintained (since it's now way out of date)?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

    Wow, nice to know. Definitely worth it to do it yourself behind the scenes then. :)
