Has anyone installed ClamAV and Qmail-scanner successfully on PLESK 7.5.4 reloaded?

    Has anyone installed Clam AV and Qmail-scanner successfully on PLESK 7.5.4 reloaded?

    I've been working with Mediatemple.net on trying to insure my (dv) is free from virus's, since I had to disable Dr.Web due to conflicts.

    Sounds like the ClamAv is the solution, but I don't see any references to successful implementation of this since ryanz "How To" in 2003, on Plesk 6.0.

    Is this still a valid installation guide via clamav's tar source?

    fyi: here is the current web documentation for clamav and qmail scanner.



    Any help/ideas appreciated.

    I have successfully installed Clamav and Qmail-Scanner on Plesk 7.5.4 with RH9 os.

    I used yum and Art's rpms as they are built to work with Plesk. If you haven't been to Art's website, goto http://atomicrocketturtle.com

    I saw your thread, wasn't sure this was successful...

    source thread: http://forum.plesk.com/showthread.php?s=&threadid=30791

    Can I follow this, and get good results?

    I just noticed some snags with the other user.

    thanks for the quick reply, jwdick.

    I had no problems with Clamav and Qmail-Scanner. I had problems with SpamAssassin starting the spamc daemon. If spamC is started, my SpamAssassin no longer works.

    From your post, you indicated that you only wanted to install Clamav and Qmail-Scanner, that Dr.Web and Spamassassin are already removed. You should not have any problems using Art's updates. If you are going to reinstall SpamAssassin, make sure you uninstall psa-spamassassin first. If I had to do it over again, I think I would change the order of the yum updates (although I do not know if this would make any difference).

    #yum install clamav qmail-scanner spamassassin

    instead of #yum install clamav spamassassion qmail-scanner

    Good Luck!

    Awesome Jack...

    My bad, I do have spamassassin running, but I don't have drweb installed, as I had problems with that.

    I have no experience with YUM, do you recommend any good directions?

    Once again, I really appreciate you taking your time to help.

    Yum is just an update utility like Up2date from Red Hat. Make sure you get the correct yum.conf settings from Art's website that go with your OS. Personally, I have not had any trouble with Yum, it has always given warnings about dependencies and in fact, checks for dependencies and pulls them in also for install and updates AND let's you know what it is about to do BEFORE is does anything.

    Yum is probably already on your system.

    #yum --help will give you a list of commands.
