Freshclam DB update fail
« on: September 17, 2015, 07:44:09 PM »
Hello to all,

I try to update Clamd database by running "freshclam". But I got the following error, any hint how to fix this?

Quote
[root@host log]# freshclam
ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log in append mode (check permissions!).
ERROR: Problem with internal logger (UpdateLogFile = /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log).

Hi.

Try to create the /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log and change owner to it.
You can ask me to solve any problem with your server for some money in pm  ;)

Check what version of clam and clamd you are using , version 0.98.4 works better than 0.98.7 in regard to log file owner

chown clamav:clamav /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log
touch /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock
chown clamav:clamav /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock

Then run the update.

The weird thing that I noticed on the old CWP version & the new CWP version is that the user & usergroup of the folders i.e. /var/log/clamav & /var/lib/clamav are different; the old one using "clamav" while the new one using "clam". Why??

Please refer to this post as well regarding the same issue reported lately.

new version has newer clamAV from different repository so there are probably changes in the paths and username.
