    Hello all,

    Today I installed a perfect server Fedora 12 with ISPConfig 3.02 on i686 box.
    After installing amavisd-new and clamav you run this command: /etc/init.d/clamd.amavisd start and this gives an error.
    clamd.amavisd Local: Socket file /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock is in use by another process.

    What to do now ?

    Output of ls -l: /var/run/clamav/clamd.sock: cannot access /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock: No such file or directory

    Output of ls -la /var/run/: drwxr-xr-x 2 amavisd amavisd 4096 2010-03-12 15:30 amavisd ( No other amavisd or clamd or clamd.amavisd in this output )

    What's the output of
    Code:
    updatedb
    locate clamd.conf
    ?

    What's in /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf?

    Hello Falko,

    The output of locate clamd.conf:
    /user/share/doc/clamav-server-0.95.3/clamd.conf
    /user/share/man/man5/clamd.conf.5.gz

    I attached the amavisd.conf file.

    Have a nice day

    Can you change
    Code:
    User amavis
    to
    Code:
    User amavis[B][COLOR="Red"]d[/COLOR][/B]
    in /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf and restart Clamd?

    Hello Falko,

    I have changed /etc/clamd/amavisd.conf like you suggested but when I restart clamd.amavisd it gives another error:
    Code:
    [B]Error: Can't get information about user amavisd. Starting clamd.amavisd failed[/B]
    Any other ideas ?

    Hello Falko,

    Here is the output of grep amavis /etc/passwd:

    amavis:x:490:475::/var/spool/amavisd:/sbin/nologin

    Have a nice day !

    Ok, then
    Code:
    User amavis
    is correct in /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf, but /var/spool/amavisd/ should be owned by amavis, not amavisd.

    Can you run
    Code:
    chown -R amavis:amavis /var/spool/amavisd/
    ?

    Thanks again Falko, that did the trick !

    In my humble opinion, does the tutorial "perfect server F12" need a little update at chapter 15 page 5 ? ( http://www.howtoforge.net/perfect-server-fedora-12-x86_64-ispconfig-3-p5 ).

    Now there is this:
    Code:
    chown amavis /var/run/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd /var/spool/amavisd/tmp /var/spool/amavisd/db
    and maybe this:
    Code:
    chown -R amavis:amavis /var/spool/amavisd/
    can / must be added ?

    Thank you for your time and have a nice day

    After updating to ISPConfig v3.0.2.1 I have this problem back again.

    Did you try
    Code:
    chown -R amavis:amavis /var/spool/amavisd/
    ?

    Hello Falko,

    Yes I did. But this time it did not help to start clamd.amavisd

    Output of ls -la /var/spool/amavisd/:
    Code:

    The "0" in front of amavisd.sock and clamd.sock should be "4096" just as the others, isn't it ?

    Can you kill all existing clamd.amavisd processes, delete /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock and restart clamd.amavisd?

    Solved - again

    Here is what I did:
    Code:
    [root@obelix ~]# ps aux | grep clamd.amavisd
    amavis    1489  0.0  9.1 129324 93464 ?        Ssl  Apr05   0:22 clamd.amavisd -c /etc/clamd.d/amavisd.conf --pid /var/run/clamd.amavisd/clamd.pid
    root     18947  0.0  0.0   4208   736 pts/0    S+   19:14   0:00 grep clamd.amavisd
    to get the PID numbers.

    Then
    Code:
    kill -9 1489
    and
    Code:
    kill -9 18947 
    -bash: kill: (18947) - No such process.
    Ignoring this I went on with
    Code:
    rm -f /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock
    and
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/clamd.amavisd start
    and clamd.amavisd started without errors.

    What will happen when I reboot my box ?

    Thank you for your help.

    I guess that if it starts without problems now, it will also start on a reboot.

    Today I had to reboot ...
    And after that I had to do as you mentioned in post #17.
    I can live with this, just for your information

    Nice weekend
