    Need more clamav info

    I've installed clamav through WHM, but I cannot find in either WHM or cPanel where to have clamav scan a file or directory. Where can I find this function?

    You can scan files and directories for viruses at the prompt. SSH to the server and run the command:
    clamscan [options] filE_OR_directory/

    But how is it done through WHM and/or cPanel? Is it not possible for my clients to scan their own websites?

    If you use the new x3 theme of Cpanel you will find the option "Virus Scanner" on the "Advanced" section of CPanel. In there you have the option to Scan your home directory.
