    Hello :

    Apologies to bump an old thread but since i need to upgrade my CLAMAV..i thought of posting to this thread..

    When i do a "whereis freshclam" i too get the same message :-

    "freshclam: /usr/bin/freshclam /etc/freshclam.conf /usr/local/bin/freshclam /usr/
    share/man/man1/freshclam.1"

    Hence what do i need to do, to get my clam updated ?

    Looking at another thread by "Chirpy" i have deleted all these files from my server :-

    HTML:
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/bin/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/sbin/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/lib/libclam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/share/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/include/clam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/bin/freshclam*
    /bin/rm -Rfv /usr/local/etc/clamav*
    What next ?

    Thank you all.

    I moved this post to its own thread since the original thread was so old and not likely relevant to the problem you are experiencing. The original thread is here:

    http://forums.cpanel.net/f5/clam-av-how-update-31287.html

    You can find the location of the freshclam binary by using the which command. Normally it is in /usr/local/bin:

    Code:
    # which freshclam
    /usr/local/bin/freshclam
    This is where it is located if it was installed as a cPanel plugin. If you have removed all of the files you mentioned, you may need to remove ClamAV and reinstall it using Main >> cPanel >> Manage Plugins.

    Are you experiencing a particular problem or error when you try to update ClamAV?

    I'll jump in here as this seems to relate to a problem I've been having. I've been getting the following emails:
    And when I login to the server and run freshclam I get the following:
    Am I doing something wrong or do I just need to wait for cpanel or Clam to update something? I've looked at the FAQ page but am worried that the normal rules don't apply to cPanel systems.

    Thanks,

    Tom
