I am a rookie and I have installed a new panel. The latter is what I did to create domains and mailboxes ... I made it through user panel...

Hi,

I did it, but get:

Stopping Clam AntiVirus Daemon: [  OK  ]
Starting Clam AntiVirus Daemon: ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamav/clamd.log in append mode (check permissions!).
[FAILED]

What to do?

you should check the permissions of your log folder /var/log/clamav

if owner is clam then replace it with clamav or reverse if different.
example
Code: [Select]
chown -R clamav.clamav /var/log/clamav

chmod: cannot access `/var/log/clamav/freshclam.log': No such file or directory
