    After about a year of Dr. Web working wonderfully, I noticed that all of a sudden viruses are coming through. Checking the status of the Dr. Web Daemon via Webmin yeilds the following error:

    Executing /etc/rc.d/init.d/drwebd status ..

    drwebd dead but subsys locked

    clicking stop or restart yeilds the following error:

    Executing /etc/rc.d/init.d/drwebd stop ..

    Shutting down DrWeb(R) daemon: [FAILED]

    Reboot does nothing. Using Plesk 7.5.3 Reloaded. Any ideas?

    Try 4PSA's CleanServer for around a hundred bucks (or less if you don't need an unlimited domain license). It just works, and is priced pretty competitively.

    Normally I wouldn't promote a product, but after all the problems I had with Dr. Web and the 7.0 series of Plesk, I would never use Dr. Web.

    At least, now, Sw-Soft ships Plesk with a "clean" qmail-queue right next to the Dr. Web version in the qmail/bin folder, so it's easy to quickly and completely disable Dr. Web.

    Of course, all this doesn't solve your problem, but I would imagine you'll get to the point where your time is worth more than the $100 it costs to resolve the issue. :)

    I use ClamAV with v7.5.3 and it works great. I suppose this could be used with qmail-scanner but I set it up with qsheff. No viruses get through now. :)
