I think the command your looking for is:

/usr/bin/clamscan /home -ir --remove=yes
Please note this is not a normal scan and WILL USE many resources, I suggest you run at non peak.

We use a cron to run it at 5:30AM daily, It looks like in crontab -e

30 5 * * * /usr/bin/clamscan /home -ir --remove=yes
We choose AM as majority of clients are Euro based, So as we like to keep there website nice and quick for when there on its best to do this when more than likely there offline. ( Asleep )

Hello there,

It sounds like ClamAV is not installed properly. I did have an issue once with this, and it turned out, that when installing, it was maxing out the allotted memory that was allowed, and thus not installing fully. I would remove it, then go to tweak settings, and increase the "Max cPanel process memory" to something larger that 256, try 512. Once that is done and saved, try installing ClamAV once again.

Chris

Are you asking how cron intervals work? Here is a guide on how cron time intervals work:

Linux Help - Cron Help Guide

For the first interval requested, it would be:

Code:
30 05 * * 1,2,4,5
Where 30 is 30 minutes after the hour, 05 is at 5am and 1,2,4,5 are the days of the week (0 is Sunday).

For the second interval, you would have:

Code:
30 05 * * *
This would be at 30 minutes after the hour at 05am every day of every week.

Also, please note this was already provided for the second one:

Code:
30 5 * * * /usr/bin/clamscan /home -ir --remove=yes
The location is in crontab -e (or editing /var/spool/cron/root file). If this is not what is being asked for the interval itself, please clarify further what is being asked.

Hello,

Please try to install the following:

Code:
yum install bzip2-devel
After that, uninstall and reinstall ClamAV.

Thanks!
