Permanent Diable ClamAV
« on: November 15, 2018, 08:40:12 AM »
I tried stoping this service via Dashboard & it get disabled but after couple of hours it starts again. My VPS have low memory that is why i want to disable this service because it takes too much memory & slows down my VPS. Is there a way to permanently disable this service. I also tried via command line using this command "service clamd stop" but its still start itself after some time. Is there a proper way. Kindly Guide me

You could uninstall it if you would never use it, this is what i did as i use other software
:
yum remove clamav*

But to stop it restarting im pretty sure you need to make sure that it is off in systemctl too (not sure how to check/configure this as i uninstall everything i do not need rather than disable)

Hi there, you can stop ClamAV and avoid starting at server's reboot by executing:

Code: [Select]
service clamd stop && systemctl disable clamd
After that, reboot your server and you will never see ClamAV started again.
