A problem occurred testing the ClamAV server scanner on Post-Installation Wizard on webmin v1.810, Virtualmin v5.04

on a new install of Ubuntu 14.04 or Ubuntu 16.04.5 i tested both... ones i get to the Post-Installation Wizard i get en error if i try to select :

Run ClamAV server scanner? Yes (more RAM used, faster mail processing - approximately 100M) on YES

i get a error: A problem occurred testing the ClamAV server scanner : ERROR: Could not lookup : Servname not supported for ai_socktype

----------- SCAN SUMMARY ----------- Infected files: 0 Time: 0.000 sec (0 m 0 s)

on the Checking Configuration page i get :

The ClamAV program clamscan does not appear to be working properly :

LibClamAV Error: cli_loaddbdir(): No supported database files found in /var/lib/clamav ERROR: Can't open file or directory

----------- SCAN SUMMARY ----------- Known viruses: 0 Engine version: 0.99.2 Scanned directories: 0 Scanned files: 0 Infected files: 0 Data scanned: 0.00 MB Data read: 0.00 MB (ratio 0.00:1) Time: 0.004 sec (0 m 0 s)

i have 4 gig of ram Intel(R) Core(TM) i7 CPU 860 @ 2.80GHz, 2 cores



Howdy -- is this on a dedicated server, or a VPS?

And which option is being chosen on that screen, the standalone scanner or the server scanner?

We've had a handful of cases of that in the past, though we've never gotten to the bottom of the cause. For most of those folks, choosing the other option side-stepped the error and allowed the wizard to continue.

if i go with Yes (more RAM used, faster mail processing - approximately 100M) it will geve a error ones i click next if i go with :

No (less RAM used, slower mail processing) it will continue but it will give a error ones you run the Re-Check Configuration

so both will end up doing errors in the end . i tested this on both on a dedicated server and VPS same with vmware workstation i even tested this on a pc at home same bug comes up.

And just to clarify, is it the same error you're seeing in each of those cases?

The error might also be caused by the ClamAV database being invalid.

If you SSH in as root and runfreshclam , what output do you get?
