• Disable and remove ClamAV [ISPConfig 3 & Debian 7]

    by  • February 9, 2015 • Tutorials • 0 Comments

    If you use a mail-server with very low ram (< 500 MB) and a slow CPU then it might be necessary to disable the antivirus filter functions in ISPConfig 3 as amavisd and clamav might be too heavy for your server hardware. Here are the steps to disable clamav: 1. Edit /etc/amavis/conf.d/50-user end comment the following two lines

    @bypass_virus_checks_maps = (
       \%bypass_virus_checks, \@bypass_virus_checks_acl, \$bypass_virus_checks_re);

    it should look like this:

    # @bypass_virus_checks_maps = (
    #    \%bypass_virus_checks, \@bypass_virus_checks_acl, \$bypass_virus_checks_re);
    @bypass_spam_checks_maps = (
       \%bypass_spam_checks, \@bypass_spam_checks_acl, \$bypass_spam_checks_re);

    Notice that I didn’t disable SPAM check, disabling clamav was enough for me.

    2. Restart amavis

    service amavis restart

    3. Stop clamav and freshclam

    service clamav-daemon stop
    service clamav-freshclam stop

    4. Disable clamav and freshclam from running on boot:

    update-rc.d -f clamav-daemon remove
    update-rc.d -f clamav-freshclam remove
