ClamAV 0.88.2 not updating?

    Hi there

    I use Plesk 7.5.6 and Clamav. Seems to be working fine, virus do get blocked (at least the fake files I got hands on)... But there are some problems...

    1. The clamd.exe seems to be not starting when rebooted. I have to start it by hand running start-clamd.bat. How can I make this permanent?

    2. My freshclam works in updating the virus definistions, but it doesn't work when scheduled from Plesk :-( Also I get this email to my admin email:

    Running task: C:\clamav-devel\bin\freshclam.exe
    Started: Tue Apr 18 00:00:00 2006
    The task output is attached to the e-mail
    Ended with code 62: Tue Apr 18 00:00:01 2006

    ERROR: Problem with internal logger.
    ERROR: Can't open /cygdrive/c/clamav-devel/log/freshclam.log in append mode (check permissions!).

    Anbody can help me please?

    Hello, Sir

    To have the antivirus starting at boot, you need to make sure it is selected in Plesk -> Server -> Components Management as the default Antivirus. You can also check if Clam AV service is set to run automatically (services should be checked during a terminal session).

    As for the update, make sure, that the file mentioned c/clamav-devel/log/freshclam.log
    has write permissions for the user, that executes the scheduled task. NTFS permissios can also be checked via remote Desktop.

    I have found out that I have to give the log file Plesk administrator permission and it works.

    I didn't find how to set it up to run automatically though :-( It is set as default mail in Plesk, but I can not find it in services on my Windows 2003.
