    Hello all,

    By the end of March / begin April I tried to install a perfect server Fedora 12 with ISPConfig v and every really important part is working !

    Only a few minor ( less important ) things fail; In ISPconfig --> monitor my freshclam log is empty.

    My freshclam.log is located in /var/log with filepermissions 644 and owner:root and group:clamupdate.

    Goede morgen Mark,

    -bash-4.0# grep UpdateLogFile /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf
    grep: /etc/clamav/freshclam.conf: No such file or directory
    You have new mail in /var/spool/mail/root
    According to the output there is no freshclam config file at this location but:
    -bash-4.0# locate freshclam.conf
    What shall I do copy the file to /etc/clamav/ or shall I make a symlink ?

    Have a nice weekeend

    Hello Falko,

    Output of grep UpdateLogFile /etc/freshclam.conf:
    -bash-4.0# grep UpdateLogFile /etc/freshclam.conf
    #UpdateLogFile /var/log/freshclam.log
    # Use system logger (can work together with UpdateLogFile).

    Uncomment the
    UpdateLogFile /var/log/freshclam.log
    line in /etc/freshclam.conf and restart freshclam.
