Default Can't connect to clamd through /var/run/clamav/clamd


I have a newest ports tree update on my freeBSD 7.0
I've installed clamav from ports and after freshclam, I get the following WARNING message:
# freshclam

have you checked the configuration in your freshclam.conf? i believe this error might be caused by the value of NotifyClamd.

It's not an error, it's a warning, which can eb safely ignored.

As nadamson already pointed out, freshclam is trying to notify clamd that a new database is installed, so that clamd can reload it, if you don't have clamd running then it can't be notified (du'h).
UNIX was not designed to stop you from doing stupid things, because that would also stop you from doing clever things.
