OpenSUSE – Can’t connect to UNIX socket /var/run/clamav/clamd: No such file or directory


You get the following error in your mail log:

Jul 7 09:13:35 hades amavis[21674]: (21674-01) (!!)ClamAV-clamd av-scanner FAILED: run_av error: Too many retries to talk to /var/run/clamav/clamd (Can’t connect to UNIX socket /var/run/clamav/clamd: No such file or directory) at (eval 101) line 325.

 

Solution

Open /etc/clamd.conf

vi /etc/clamd.conf

… and change the line LocalSocket /var/lib/clamav/clamd-socket to LocalSocket /var/run/clamav/clamd:

LocalSocket /var/run/clamav/clamd

Then restart clamd.
