    Is there a way to check the status of the spam filter? After some updates completed on the server yesterday (which included ClamAV and some other software) some spam that is in our blacklist seems to be getting through. I am not sure how to fix.

    ISPConfig 3
    CentOS 6.X

    I tried a couple of things, finally down to forcing ISPConfig to reconfigure all the services. Still at the same point except the error is different:

    amavis[28240]: (28240-01) (!)ClamAV-clamd: Can't connect to UNIX socket /var/spool/amavisd/clamd.sock: 2, retrying (2)

    So I checked ClamD and its not running, attempts to start it fail with:
    ERROR: Can't open /var/log/clamav/clamd.log in append mode (check permissions!).
    ERROR: Can't initialize the internal logger

    Tried to adjust the permissions for the log file. No luck. Deleted the log.
    rm /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
    touch /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
    chown clamav /var/log/clamav/clamd.log

    Then I get error:
    LibClamAV Error: cl_cvdhead: Can't read CVD header in /var/clamav/daily.cld
    LibClamAV Error: cli_loaddbdir(): error parsing header of /var/clamav/daily.cld
    ERROR: Malformed database

    Removed the Daily.cld

    Then Error:
    LibClamAV Warning: **************************************************
    LibClamAV Warning: *** The virus database is older than 7 days! ***
    LibClamAV Warning: *** Please update it as soon as possible. ***
    LibClamAV Warning: **************************************************
    LibClamAV Error: cli_cvdverify: Can't read CVD header
    LibClamAV Error: Can't load /var/clamav/main.cld: Broken or not a CVD file
    ERROR: Broken or not a CVD file

    So I delete that one as well. Then run Freshclam to update.

    Then start the service, all is well except it still tells me the virus DB is 7 days out of date?
    Freshclam completes and says the files are up to date.
