SSH to the server and kill -9 PID (all spamd PID), then /scripts/restartsrv spamd

After last nights cp upgrade I am having the same issue. it seems that clamd is not running at all. killing spamd and restarting has no effect, and a complete reboot did nothing either.

I hate when thread tell you what to do and there is never any follow up.

I'm actually having same issue...

Code:
clamav failed

clamav failed @ Wed Dec 10 08:56:01 2008. A restart was attempted automagically.

Failure Reason: Unable to connect to port
Pff! someone couldn't spell automatically....

Brand new server. Here is where i started
http://forum.configserver.com/showthread.php?t=1906

I did run a eicar test virus and it did pick it up. So i can say it works but i think chkservd via cpanel has to be a problem.

Please there has to be a fix for this because this has become annoying with cpanel emailing me every 10 mins stating clamav has failed and restarting.

Try in root whm: Manage Plug-Ins > Uninstall clamav

then you can do the same thing but tick "install and keep updated" and save changes at the bottom of the manage plug-ins page.

In effect, reinstalling clamav as it doesn't seem to exist anymore.
