    It seems that /var/virusmails has wrong permissions. Please post the output of
    Code:
    ls -la /var

    # /usr/local/sbin/amavisd -u _clamav start
    No printout.


    Now I'm trying figuring out how to run both clamav and amavisd-new as _clamav

    Any advice? TIA

    I'm not sure, but can't you set the user in the amavisd configuration?

    Hi falko,


    Performed following steps:

    # chown -R _clamav:_clamav /var/db/clamav/

    On /etc/clamd.conf added
    Code:
    ......
    # Run as another user (clamd must be started by root to make this option
    # working).
    # Default: don't drop privileges
    #User clamav
    User _clamav 
    
    # /usr/local/sbin/clamd restart
    Code:
    Running as user _clamav (UID 539, GID 539)
    ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamd.log in append mode (check permissions!).
    ERROR: Problem with internal logger. Please check the permissions on the
    /var/log/clamd.log file.
    
    Error found.

    # ls -l /var/log | grep clamd.log
    # find / -name clamd.log
    both w/o printout

    I can either create "clamd.log" or to comment out:
    Code:
    #LogFile /var/log/clamd.log
    
    The problem is, the file "clamd.log" will grow continuously unless running "newsyslog" or "cron" (logrotate on Linux). But I'm not experienced on both of them. Can you advise? TIA

    Isn't logrotate called on a daily basis on your system?

    No.

    OpenBSD uses "newsyslog" instead. I heard "cron" before. It is more powerful. Neither I have experience on both of them.
