In logwatch I am seeing this:

Starting clamd: LibClamAV Warning: Detected duplicate databases /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/clamav/main.cvd and /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/clamav/main.cld, please manually remove one of them

Is there a recommended solution for this? i.e. Which is best to remove? Is it as simple as deleting the files? Or do I need to edit a .conf somewhere?

Thanks.

Hello,

You could move the duplicate database to another location with commands like this:

Code:
mkdir /root/clamav-backup
mv  /usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/share/clamav/main.cld  /root/clamav-backup/
Then, check for any error messages when running the following commands:

Code:
/usr/local/cpanel/3rdparty/bin/freshclam
/scripts/restartsrv_clamd
Thank you.
