[clamav-users] Need help: clamd stops after starting without any error message

Hi,

I'm using clamav on my server (Ubuntu 12.04 LTS) for long time without any problem. Now I get messages from amavis that it cannot connect to socket

/var/run/clamav/clamd.ctl

The file exists and the file clamd.pid exists too, but there is no running process with this PID.

If I execute

service clamav-daemon start

these two files are updated and a clamd-process is running for some seconds, then it stops.

This is all I get in /var/log/clamav/clamav.log:

Any help is appreciated. I read the FAQ and googled but did not found any helpful solution.

Thanks in advance
