    Time by time I get this error. The SPAN filter seams to work, if Virus Scan works I do not know, did not have indicated a Virus.
    (!)ClamAV-clamd av-scanner FAILED: run_av error: Too many retries to talk to /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl (All attempts (1) failed connecting to /var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl) at (eval 113) line 659.\n

    There are different solutions on this in the net and some very old discussions here.
    As I know ISPconfig ist managing parts of spamfilter and virusscan itself. I do not want to manually modify conf files.
    Do I have an issue with that error. I user debian 10 in a multiserver system with ISPconfig 3.2 and have this on a dedicated mailserver, I hold my system up to date and update it every time ISPconfig tells me there are updates available.
    The server was set up as documented in the perfect server tutotial

    Thanks for help

    Maybe ClamAV is out of memory? How much memory do you have available?
