Unhappy Question about ClamAV/Clamfresh


When I enter "freshclam" in the terminal I get the following messages:
Quote:
ERROR: Please edit the example config file /usr/local/etc/freshclam.conf.
ERROR: Please edit the example config file /usr/local/etc/
Error: Can't parse the config file /usr/local/etc/clamd.conf.
O.Kl I haven't a clue as to what this means.

After you install clamav, you have to comment the line "Example" in both clamd.conf and freshclam.conf, in order for clamav and freshclam to work.

Well for goodness sakes, that wasn't very hard, was it?
I thank you for your reply.
