    CLAMAV doesnt seem to be updating automatically (i will add more mirror databases to the freshclam.conf file today) I am at version 809 and the virus definition database has been updated to version 813.

    Now that I ran it manually I am uptodate:

    C:\clamav-devel\bin>freshclam.exe
    ClamAV update process started at Thu Apr 7 05:44:22 2005
    main.cvd is up to date (version: 30, sigs: 31086, f-level: 4, builder: tkojm)
    Downloading daily.cvd [*]
    daily.cvd updated (version: 813, sigs: 1493, f-level: 4, builder: trog)
    Database updated (32579 signatures) from database.clamav.net (IP: 206.58.251.131
    )
    Clamd successfully notified about the update.

    Verified it wihin the control panel as well:
    ClamAV devel-20050323/813/Thu Apr 7 03:20:51 2005

    i also setup the freshclam.pid (process) within in the freshclam.conf file to run seperatley than inside of the clamd.pid process to test this

    If I am missing something for auto update please let me know. I made no changes to either the clamd.conf or freshclam.conf files.

    Thanks
    Joe

    now i am getting this error:

    Running task: C:\clamav-devel\bin\freshclam.exe
    Started: Thursday, April 07, 2005 3:00:15 PM
    Task output:
    ERROR: Can't open /cygdrive/c/clamav-devel/log/freshclam.log in append mode (check permissions!).

    Task error output:
    ERROR: Problem with internal logger.

    Ended: Thursday, April 07, 2005 3:00:15 PM with code (1)

    I am guessing beause the log file is being used by another process. Is there anyway around this?

    This is a bug in windows ClamAV implementation. Open in windows explorer c:\clamav-devel and set inherit rights to log directory and children.

    I applied psaserv to c:\clam-devel with

    Read & Excute
    List Folder Content
    Read
    Write

    as well as changed pasadm and psacln to have the same permission as above, and ticked "Allow inheritable...." in Advanced.

    But I am still having these errors,

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


    What have I missed? Thank you.

    my permissions are the following:

    administrators and system - full control
    psaserv - write

    do not allow inheritable from parent to propogate

    check the replace permissions on child objects.

    this is working for me.

    hope this helps,
    Joe
