I check the server stats and its RED. anyone know how to fix this, I even restarted the chkservd. Still RED. I then reinstall the clamAV and reinstall it, I even did a reinstall on the exim. I'm out of ideas, anyone know how to fix this?

    Either no one knows the answer or no one wants to help you, in either case follow the PROPER procedure for getting support help from cpanel.

    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.

    --Jeremy

    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.
