    Hi,

    Almost smoothly and perfectly done, I followed the guide:
    The Perfect Server - CentOS 6.4 x86_64 (Apache2, Dovecot, ISPConfig 3)

    When I got to:
    Code:
    sa-update
    chkconfig --levels 235 amavisd on
    chkconfig --del clamd
    chkconfig --levels 235 clamd.amavisd on
    /usr/bin/freshclam
    /etc/init.d/amavisd start
    /etc/init.d/clamd.amavisd start
    I received the following:
    Code:
    [[email protected] install]# /etc/init.d/clamd.amavisd start
    Starting clamd.amavisd:                                    [FAILED]
    
    STOP and RESTART give the same issue.
    I have restarted postfix.

    Anyone can guide me through this please?

    Thank you

    Further information:

    to check running services:
    # chkconfig --list | grep "amavisd\|clamd\|spamassassin"

    Code:
    amavisd         0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:off   5:on    6:off
    clamd.amavisd   0:off   1:off   2:on    3:on    4:off   5:on    6:off
    spamassassin    0:off   1:off   2:off   3:off   4:off   5:off   6:off
    
    it shows as if it's running !!!


    Also, in CentOs guide they mention that
    this by editing the /etc/clamd.conf

    This is not mentioned in the guide, should this be done?
