Unhappy clamd challenges | The Perfect Server-CentOS 5.7 x86_64 [ISPConfig 3]-Pg 4

We were moving along rather nicely in getting our new server prepared to install ISPConfig3 until we ran into the following error:

[root@webserver ~]# sa-update
[root@webserver ~]# chkconfig --levels 235 amavisd on
[root@webserver ~]# chkconfig --levels 235 clamd on
error reading information on service clamd: No such file or directory

I followed what I thought was the solution:
#mkdir /var/run/clamd

No problem here (except after a reboot, the directory no longer exists)

Then I tried to understand the following command:
#chown root:<same group name that clamd runs as> /var/run/clamd

(I have no clue as to what 'same group name that clamd runs as'. Please explain)

I do not want to go any further in the prep work until I can get clamd to function properly. Please advise - thanx in advance!

Do you use CentOS 5.x, or is it 6.x?

Please verify:

I've found that service 'clamd' is now called 'clamd.amavisd'.

I've upgraded my spamassassin on my ISPconfig 3 last Friday and it removed the amavis-new so I had no mails on mailboxes until I found this.

Regards.

I am unsure what to verify because I do not understand why the directory was not created; and whether or not I should create the directory, remove then start from scratch or something else. Please advise.

The impression I get is that you have a CentOS 6 system with a kernel from CentOS 5. Can you check your OS version in /etc/redhat-release or /etc/centos-release?

Here's the log:
[webdev@webserver ~]$ sudo vi /etc/redhat-release
[sudo] password for webdev:
"/etc/redhat-release"
"/etc/redhat-release" 1L, 27CCentOS release 5.7 (Final)
~ ~ :q
[webdev@webserver ~]$ logout

It still looks like it's CentOS 5.7
It's a virgin server, so I can do whatever is required since there's no websites on it yet.
