Default Dam!

I thought if any one could help me it would be you.

I have been reading a lot of things on the internet about this problem when clamav has been upgraded but most of them are a slightly different setup to mine with different programs. Im not that experienced in Linux matters so I was worried that if I tried some of their proposed solutions I might break something else. People have been saying it is a permissions problem, others say it was a flaw in the upgrade and there is a later one that will fix it.

They speak of "volatile repositries". Im not sure what that means or whether it is a good idea.

I feel the major clue is the fact that clamd.conf is looking for:
LocalSocket /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl
but there is no file called clamd.ctl

I seem to remember during startup, before the upgrade, it used to say something about trying to start clamav and changing something because of what was in clamd.conf.

I think I will try to go through the howto again and see if there are any clues of what needs to be done.

I did notice that in the howto it says:
Quote:
Now run

netstat -tap

and you should see Postfix (master) listening on port 25 (smtp) and 10025, and amavisd-new on port 10024:
and mine now says:

I did read that upgrading changed the bash/dash thing so I redid that from the how to.

If all else fails I will have to wipe the server and start again. I really dont want to do that because there is still at least 40,000 emails stuck in the queue that it is ever so slowly sending out and it is a very important mailout.

I do know one thing though.
I will never do an upgrade again.

Thanks for looking at this for me Falko.
