ClamAV with WHM and Centos 5.8


Hello I installed ClamAv via WHM. Everything is working great on command line. But I want to run cronjob to update virus database daily with freshclam command and scan entire dedicated server everyday(mails,wws,ftps,/home etc.) on midnight(low load) for removing security threats and viruses on server. I will run crons on root. Please help me to create cronjob for virus db update and daily virus scan and remove for entire server.

I appreciate!

Thanks

you do know that ClamAV dose not remove them , right?
It only informs you about them

Are there any "SELinuxTroubleShooter" errors ?
what are the file/folder permissions ?
how exactly ARE you setting up the cron job ?

to repeat:

freshclam needs to run as root
so how did you set up the cron job ?
