(1) clamd/clamdscan are the server/client pair. clamd is the virus-scanning daemon, and clamdscan is the client by which one contacts the daemon to scan files (e.g. "clamdscan filename"). clamscan is the command-line version, so you would use either the pair clamd/clamdscan or clamscan.
(2)-(4) Some suggestions:
- Make sure /var/lib/clamav is owned by the user specified by the "DatabaseOwner" variable in freshclam.conf.
- Make sure that the user specified by the "User" variable in clamd.conf has permission to create files in the directory containing the socket specified by the "LocalSocket" variable in clamd.conf.
- run "freshclam" to update the database
