    Hello,

    noticed when we restart Exim we get the following results:
    Code:
    service exim restart
    
    Shutting down clamd: [FAILED]
    Shutting down exim: [  OK  ]
    Shutting down antirelayd: [  OK  ]
    Shutting down spamd: [  OK  ]
    Starting clamd: ERROR: Can't parse the config file /etc/clamav.conf
    [FAILED]
    Starting exim-26: [  OK  ]
    Starting exim: [  OK  ]
    Starting exim-smtps: [  OK  ]
    Starting antirelayd: [  OK  ]
    Starting spamd: [  OK  ]
    
    now Exim start fine and all works with no problems, but I don't understand the issues with ClamAv, we've never used it, or installed it as far as I know.

    The /etc/clamav.conf file empty. Why is it looking for clamav to shutdown and parsing the conf file ?? It's just an annoying problem that I'd just like to remove :) What can be safely removed so it doesn't do this anymore ??

    TIA,
    Mickalo

    Go on, have a guess
    Make sure you don't have clamd enabled in WHM > Service Manager in either tick box.

    no, it's never been checked, there isn't even a box there too check! That's what makes so confusing .
