Clamav not starting at boot time.


Greetings:

I installed Clamav using YUM on CentOS 7.2 and I can't seem to get it started at boot time.

Tried a number of different things but nothing seems to work.

Below is the output of some of commands I ran and I can see a failure message but I can't resolve it.

Just to mention, I tried clamscan and it seems to work.

Some help in getting this resolved would be much appreciated.

Thanks.

Hi:

Did you use these commands to install clamav?

Code:
# yum install -y epel-release

# yum install -y clamav
-::-On Community Enterprise Operating System (CentOS) the clamav package requires the Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux (EPEL) repository.-::-

Running 'freshclam' manually is giving you a failure:
Code:
Failed to start clamd scanner daemon
It might mean that you need to install clamav-daemon but I'm not 100% sure.
OR>
Maybe you need to setup a link in /etc/rc3.d to the clamd and clamav-milter startup scripts?

-::-Best to wait on members that have this experience. Sorry I don't know more I'm still learning about servers.-::-

Maybe these links will help:-
