    Download ClamAV 0.97 to your server, and then run these commands from within the folder where you stored the downloaded ClamAV file:

    Code:
    CLAMAV=clamav-0.97
    
    APPLICATION_NAME=ispconfig
    INSTALL_ROOT=/root/${APPLICATION_NAME}
    INSTALL_ROOT_TMP=${INSTALL_ROOT}_tmp
    COMPILE_DIR=`pwd`
    ARCH=`uname -m`
    
    tar xvfz ${CLAMAV}.tar.gz
    
    cd ${CLAMAV}
    ./configure --prefix=/home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav --sysconfdir=/home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc --with-user=adm${APPLICATION_NAME} --with-group=adm${APPLICATION_NAME} --disable-clamav --disable-bzip2 --disable-zlib-vcheck
    if [ $? != 0 ]; then
      ./configure --prefix=/home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav --sysconfdir=/home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc --with-user=adm${APPLICATION_NAME} --with-group=adm${APPLICATION_NAME} --disable-clamav --disable-bzip2 --disable-zlib-vcheck --disable-gcc-vcheck CFLAGS="-O0"
    fi
    make
    make install
    cp -f COPYING /home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/
    cd ${COMPILE_DIR}
    cp -f clamav.conf /home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc/clamav.conf
    cp -f freshclam.conf /home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc/freshclam.conf
    rm -f /home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc/clamd.conf
    cd /home/adm${APPLICATION_NAME}/${APPLICATION_NAME}/tools/clamav/etc/
    ln -s clamav.conf clamd.conf
    cd ${COMPILE_DIR}

    Sorry, I forgot to mention that you need to create these two files manually in your ${COMPILE_DIR}:

    clamav.conf:

    Code:
    ##
    ## Example config file for the Clam AV daemon
    ## Please read the clamav.conf(5) manual before editing this file.
    ##
    
    
    # Comment or remove the line below.
    #Example
    
    # Uncomment this option to enable logging.
    # LogFile must be writable for the user running the daemon.
    # Full path is required.
    #LogFile /tmp/clamd.log
    
    # By default the log file is locked for writing - the lock protects against
    # running clamd multiple times (if want to run another clamd, please
    # copy the configuration file, change the LogFile variable, and run
    # the daemon with --config-file option). That's why you shouldn't uncomment
    # this option.
    #LogFileUnlock
    
    # Maximal size of the log file. Default is 1 Mb.
    # Value of 0 disables the limit.
    # You may use 'M' or 'm' for megabytes (1M = 1m = 1048576 bytes)
    # and 'K' or 'k' for kilobytes (1K = 1k = 1024 bytes). To specify the size
    # in bytes just don't use modifiers.
    #LogFileMaxSize 2M
    
    # Log time with an each message.
    #LogTime
    
    # Use system logger (can work together with LogFile).
    #LogSyslog
    
    # Enable verbose logging.
    #LogVerbose
    
    # This option allows you to save the process identifier of the listening
    # daemon (main thread).
    #PidFile /var/run/clamd.pid
    
    # Path to a directory containing .db files.
    # Default is the hardcoded directory (mostly /usr/local/share/clamav,

    # The daemon works in local or network mode. Currently the local mode is
    # recommended for security reasons.
    
    # Path to the local socket. The daemon doesn't change the mode of the
    # created file (portability reasons). You may want to create it in a directory
    # which is only accessible for a user running daemon.

    Process problems with ClamAV

    Hi all!
    I have another problem with my ClamAV 096.1 on Ubuntu 10.04. I found a few days before that i had enabled antivirus modul on ispconfig 2 for a few users. Then after they started using it, server started to slow down and i found dosens of zombie clamav processes which had eated all my memory and CPU time. I had to kill them manually to free up resources and server started to come back slowly to functioning and speed up. After that i found that my memory usage was dropped down approx. to 200 megs by all other processes which then increased to near 1 gigs (as it is normal) as time passed. Is there any solution to solve it? Does clamav have any easier update process? I think i will disable the av modul in ispconfig 2 GUI if the problem is not resolvable quickly. Thanks for any help!
