Sorry to resurrect this ancient thread, but I am looking for a simple way to get clamd working and, more importantly, to get it working properly. Each time I install it I slog through all the steps that I think are required and still manage to get something wrong or leave something out.
This script seems like the answer to my dreams and indeed I used it quite successfully on F14 and F15.
I have recently installed F17 however and I am a little nervous about using the current (VERSION=0.4 ?) version of the script.
Two things worry me:
1) In the /usr/share/doc/clamav-server-0.97.5/README doc it says: "NEVER use 'clamav' as the user since he can modify the database." yet the script uses clamav as the user; and
2) Since F16 systemd has been the default system and service manager and there is a systemd service file (which I don't understand!) provided with the F17 yum clamav-server package. How hard would it be to modify the script to make it systemd compliant?
Answers to this, or any other suggestions - or simple walk-through guides (relevant for F17) would be much appreciated...
