Drweb can't update

    I did search the forums and googled as well but with no luck.
    When I try to manually update the virus definitions I get the following
    Can not fetch http://update.drweb.com/unix/drweb32.lst
    Can not fetch http://update.us.drweb.com/unix/drweb32.lst
    Can not fetch http://update.msk.drweb.com/unix/drweb32.lst
    Can not fetch drweb32.lst from any known update servers. at /opt/drweb/update/update.pl line 102.

    When I go to the sites listed manually it looks like the file is available. Since I am not getting the bad license error I don't think it is my licenses...
    I am running 7.5.2 on FC1.
    Anyone have any ideas?

    Several days ago I took on the task of trying to become more familiar with how Dr.Web worked and tried to update the virus definations on my server using the same script you mentioned and received the same error message. As Dr.Web needs to have updates on a constant basis I figured that Plesk had setup a Crontab script to handle that chore and decided to see if their script was different than the one provided in the user manual.

    I clicked on Crontab, and then selected: drweb (Dr.Web(R) daemon account)

    The following Crontab task was shown:

    /opt/drweb/update/update.pl >/dev/null 2>&1

    This particular task is scheduled to run twice every hour.

    I checked out the following directory: /var/drweb/bases and determined that my server had an up to date virus definition file, which meant that the Crontab task was working. I hope this info helps...

    I went into the directory that you listed and see that there are files but the newest one is January 18. I also see that the DRweb site has updates listed already for February. I listed what I have in /var/drweb/bases below:

    You mentioned that you checked out the /var/drweb/bases directory and found no recent virus definitions, but you didn't say whether or not you tried running: /opt/drweb/update/update.pl >/dev/null 2>&1 or verified that a Crontab task had been setup by Plesk on your box.

    Thanks Whistler,

    I also was geting the same error like PhilM and solved it by changing the perl script the way you say on your other post.

    Thanks :D

    Thanks for the info Whistler. I made the modification listed in the other thread and the update script now populates new files in the base directory. Thanks again.
