LibClamAV Error: cli_loaddbdir(): No supported database files found in /var/lib/clamav

Issue

When I tried to Scan the /home directory I got this error.

[[email protected] ~]# clamscan /home
LibClamAV Error: cli_loaddbdir(): No supported database files found in /var/lib/clamav

It shows on supported database files found in /var/lib/clamav, which may caused the issue?

Solution

You will need to use the command:

freshclam

to create the neccesary virus database files.

This can then be set up as a service to periodically update the database.
