    LibClamAV Error: cli_loaddb(): No supported database files found in /usr/share/clamav
    ERROR: Can't open file or directory

    I tried the resolution steps mentioned in the below threads.

    This didn't helped. The error still exists. I tried reinstalling clamav using whm still the database folder is found empty. I also tried increasing the cpanel memory to 512M. I checked the cpanel logs and checked the installation log there was not error at all. I have followed the below steps.

    cd /usr/share
    mkdir -p clamav
    chown clamav:clamav clamav
    freshclam -v

    re-installed from WHM -> Plugins via UPCP. It needs to be patched or re-installed as follows:

    cd /usr/local/cpanel/mod*/clam* (/usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector-Linux-x86_64)

    Finally I was able to solve the issue by restoring the database contents from another server "/usr/share/clamav". We copied the files bytecode.cld, daily.cld, main.cld, mirrors.dat to the server having the issue. Now clamd started working :)

    I am sure this is not a proper method of solving the clamd database issue. It will be great if somebody helps.
