    Is this a bug or tuning in conf files at my end fixes this. I want the database to be updated every week, which i have done using a Cronjob.

    Appreciate your time...

    Thanks

    Do you have a freshclam cron job in /etc/cron.hourly/?

    Hello Falko,

    Thanks for your quick reply. I don't see any cronjob set as you said. here is the list of cronjobs.


    ls /etc/cron*
    /etc/cron.allow /etc/cron.deny /etc/crontab

    /etc/cron.d:
    ntpd rhn-virtualization.cron sysstat

    /etc/cron.daily:
    0anacron 0logwatch cups logrotate makewhatis.cron mlocate.cron prelink rpm tmpwatch

    /etc/cron.fivem:
    agentupper

    /etc/cron.hourly:
    mcelog.cron

    /etc/cron.monthly:
    0anacron

    /etc/cron.weekly:
    0anacron 99-raid-check makewhatis.cron


    Thanks
