Upgrading ClamAV taken from http://www.configserver.com/cp/upgrade.html

* Download the latest stable ClamAV distribution from http://www.clamav.net
* Expand the distribution and cd into the resultant directory and build ClamAV using:
tar -xzf clamav-*
cd clamav*
./configure --disable-zlib-vcheck
make
make install
replace "Example" "#Example" -- /usr/local/etc/freshclam.conf
replace "Example" "#Example" -- /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf
* Run freshclam to download the latest definitions:
freshclam
* If you're using the clamavmodule, check you have the latest version installed:
/scripts/perlinstaller Mail::ClamAV

The clamav has been outdated for weeks now. It seems that you need to do everything manually these days and spens much time searching for fixes to common problems that take cPanel months to get around to fixing.

What is the deal with cPanel??? Have they given up on support? Are they too busy fixing the scattering of bugs that they don't have time to keep things running smoothly? If they are not going to support the addons (seems that they are not supporting them since they are all in beta for years now) then why even offer them. cPanel has great potential, I AM a fan, but other panels are catching up fast and seem to be more serious about their products. I hope that cPanel gets their act together at less than a snails pace!!! :(

Quite a few control panels are already ahead in many aspects other than perceived end user popularity.

by the way using this you will have 2 clamd installations

[email protected] [~]# /usr/sbin/clamd --v
ClamAV 0.88.5/2267/Thu Nov 30 23:29:21 2006
[email protected] [~]# /usr/local/sbin/clamd --v
ClamAV 0.88.6/2269/Fri Dec 1 13:17:05 2006

which of these two will use cpanel ?!?

I think 88.5 , infact whm reports
Installed Version: 0.88.5-1.9
Version: 0.88.5-1.9

Ok I found a solution which works very well on CENTOS 4


cd /usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector-Linux-i686
wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.88.6.tar.gz
wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.88.6.tar.gz.sig
./install2

done !

If you will use this way I suggest you to uncheck "Install and Keep Updated " from WHM !!!

The file install2 is in attach and it must be uploaded and chmod 755 on
/usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector-Linux-i686 !

Next time , suppose version 0.88.9 repeat the procedure above but before
open install2 and change the first lines with

AVV=0.88.9
AVVOLD=0.88.6

I've upgraded clamav to the latest version per config server's directions here:
http://configserver.com/cp/upgrade.html

I show
# clamscan -V
ClamAV 0.90.1/2921/Sat Mar 24 09:52:12 2007

But then I try to upgrade mailscanner and it says:

Starting clamd: LibClamAV Warning: ********************************************* ***********
LibClamAV Warning: *** This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated. ***
LibClamAV Warning: *** DON'T PANIC! Read http://www.clamav.net/faq.html ***

Any ideas?

The way to update clamd in a safe way , that I already explained above and it is still good is the following.
if you want 0.90.3

cd /usr/local/cpanel/modules-install/clamavconnector-Linux-i686
wget http://switch.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.90.3.tar.gz
wget -r -nH --cut-dirs=10 http://www.grscripts.com/install2
chmod 755 install2

now check your clamd version
clamd --v

for example it returns 0.90.2

pico install2 and replace

AVVOLD=0.90.1
with your current version

so you should have this
AVV=0.90.3
AVVOLD=0.90.2

Save


Now execute

/install2

done ! Now you have 0.90.3

You can use a similar way for next updates , only wget latest clamv and
tweak install2 with new and current version.

Bye
