    this is what i did since clamav was stalling the server:

    Code:
    
    > apt-get install libgmp3-dev
    > cd /some-build-directory
    > wget http://ovh.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/clamav/clamav-0.91.2.tar.gz
    > tar xzf c*0.91.2*gz
    > cd c*0.91.2
    
    libgmp3-dev will enable verifying digital signatures (http://www.clamav.net/support/faq)

    Code:
    
    > ./configure --prefix=/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav \
                  --sysconfdir=/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/etc \
                  --with-user=admispconfig \
                  --with-group=admispconfig \
                  --disable-clamav \
                  --disable-bzip2
    > make
    > make install
    > cp -f COPYING /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/
    
    edit clamassassin
    Code:
    
    > vi /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/bin/clamassassin
    
    Code:
    
    CLAMSCAN=/home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/bin/clamdscan
    
    create logfolder
    Code:
    
    > mkdir /var/log/clamav
    > chown admispconfig:admispconfig /var/log/clamav
    
    edit clamav.conf or clamd.conf
    ( clamd.conf should be a link to clamav.conf )
    Code:
    
    > vi /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/etc/clamav.conf
    or
    > vi /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/etc/clamd.conf
    
    Code:
    
    LogFile /var/log/clamav/clamd.log
    ScanMail 1
    
    edit freshclam.conf
    Code:
    
    > vi /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/etc/freshclam.conf
    
    Code:
    
    UpdateLogFile /var/log/clamav/freshclam.log
    NotifyClamd /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/etc/clamd.conf
    
    create startup script for clamd
    ( took it from the clamav-daemon package )
    Code:
    
    > vi /etc/init.d/clamav-daemon

    Could you post an instruction about how to swith to clamd in other version of linux? e.g Redhat. It will be great if you do that. Cheers.

    There are many posts about it. Please search forum first.
    It's easy to find out how to use your distribution supplied clamav daemon (clamd).
    Edit
    Code:
    /home/admispconfig/ispconfig/tools/clamav/bin/clamassassin
    file and change CLAMSCAN value to clamd absolute path, for example (SLES10SP1):
    Code:
    CLAMSCAN=/usr/bin/clamdscan
    Also edit ispconfig startup file
    Code:
    /etc/init.d/ispconfig_server
    and comment out freshclam startup/shutdown lines and use your distribution freshclamd daemon.

    Above solution (topic author's) did not require to do that - but personally i prefer this one.
