Upgrade Clamav for older FreeBSD box : This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated

One of my FreeBSD box that use version 6.3 stop working. Futher investigation lead me to old clamav version that forced to upgrade by .

This version of the ClamAV engine is outdated

I think about upgrade the box to newer version like 7.3 or 8.0 release but final choice I pick is :

Let it as is :-)

Just focus on clamav because everything running well and I don’t want to risk anything that might happen ( ports conflict, new config etc)

My method :

1. Update ports to latest version.

2. Check clamav version

# portversion -v | grep clamav

clamav-0.94.2               <  needs updating (port has 0.96_1)

3. Downgrade ports file for clamav using portdowngrade ( I choose version 0.95.3)

4. Reinstall Clamav.

# portversion -v | grep clamav

clamav-0.95.3               <  needs updating (port has 0.96_1)

5. Restart clamav

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/clamav-clamd restart

# /usr/local/etc/rc.d/clamav-freshclam restart

Email server back to business.

P.S : in case you want to skip portdowngrade section you can use my clamav ports.


Fatal error: Call to undefined function gregoriantojd()

That error message show up when I try to install wordpress plugin. I think it must be plugin author false since I already have php date extension enabled but I’m wrong :-)

Further search lead me to ‘calendar’ extension. Look no further to php5-calendar in my FreeBSD 7.3 box I install it.

cd /usr/ports/misc/php5-calendar && make install

stop php cgi prosess

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ stop

start php cgi process

/usr/local/etc/rc.d/ start

check extension with phpinfo() function :

Great its on the list now. Refresh plugin install at wordpress and I’m back to business :-)
