ClamAV needs to be started


Hi all,

I'm sorry if this thread is in the wrong catagorie.

I wanted to use a anti-virus program in owncloud 9.1.0 so I was looking into clamAV. I do this in Linux Mint 18.

First you must install it and then activate in owncloud but you are not done yet. As it stands today you have installed

clamav and clamav-daemon

but when you try to use


you get errors. After some research I found out that


isn't running! So no file are scanned during upload.

To activate it do

sudo service clamav-daemon start

and let it run.

Now you have clamav active and you can check it with

netstat -a | grep clam
