    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) :eek:

    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.

    We're running CentOS 5.7

    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.

    What are the outputs of
    Code:
    ls -la /var/run/
    and
    Code:
    uname -a
    ?

    Is there a knowledgeable individual willing to provide insight to help me solve my challenge with clamAV?

    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.

    Can you check your repo files (in /etc/yum.repos.d/)? Maybe you are using the repos for CentOS 6.

    Is this what you're looking for?

    Yes. Please check the contents of these files to make sure they use CentOS 5 repositories, not CentOS 6 repos.
