Hello,

I've a little problem with clamd. On the WHM >> Server Status >> Service Status page clamd status is failed with red alert. I've tried to restart with:

Code:
/scripts/restartsrv clamd
And the result is:

Code:
Waiting for clamd to restart..............finished.


clamd started ok
But, these isn't any change on Service Status page. Is the clamd working or not working? How can I fix this?

Thanks now.

To double check, do the following as root:

ps aux | grep clamd

and tell me what you see please. Sometimes the service statuses do not update properly and it may be awhile before you see it showing the correct status.

Hope this helps.

Hello asterisk,

Your command result is:

Code:
root     56548  0.0  1.0 20424 19528  ??  Ss    1:08PM   0:00.05 /usr/sbin/clamd
One note: I've installed clamav with Addon Modules.

I've the same issue. Don't know a solution yet, but if you remove /var/run/chkservd/clamd you won't see it popup in the service status anymore.

That's the same as sweeping the dirt under the rug so your visitors won't see it. The problem will still be there.

Try killing freshclam, maybe it's hung:
killall freshclam

Try forcing an update and see what you get:
freshclam

Try forcing an exim update too if you get here:
/scripts/eximup --force

Then restart:
service exim stop
service exim start
