What are your current user/group ownership and permissions on:  /var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock ?

I set:

Still getting the permission denied.

Note the process:
clamscan 30407  1.4  4.6 1406020 1150544 ?     Ssl  10:57   1:08 /usr/sbin/clamd -c /etc/clamd.d/scan.conf

And I added most of the clamav-related users to the closely name groups:

Hi Robert,

clamav-milter is a separate process that interacts with clamd.  What user are you running clamav-milter under?  It seems as thought clamav-milter doesn't have permission to access the clamd socket file to interact with clamd.

Regarding multiple socket options:

You are correct in that the ClamdSocket option in the milter config file may be used multiple times in case you have multiple clamd instances set up.  However, each clamd instance will only listen on 1 socket, so you must select either 1 TCP or 1 Unix/Local.

Cheers,
Micah

Thanks Micah, now getting a different error:

srw-rw-rw- 1 clamscan clamscan 0 Jul 16 10:57 /var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock

In the /etc/mail/clamav-milter.conf I have:
MilterSocket /var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock
ClamdSocket unix:/var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock

Clamd is running, note as the user clamscan:
ps -auwx | grep clam

The last few lines of /var/log/clamav-milter.log has:
Mon Jul 16 10:30:15 2018 -> Failed to establish a connection to clamd
Mon Jul 16 10:30:15 2018 -> Probe for slot 1 returned: failed

You wrote: "You should use only 1 ( TCP _or_ Unix/Local ) socket for clamd"
But in the clamav-milter.conf it says:
# This option can be repeated several times with different sockets or even
# with the same socket: clamd servers will be selected in a round-robin
# fashion.

Anyways, seems to be a permission problem. Is clamav-milter trying to restart clamd based on the logs above??

It looks to me like you have 2 types of sockets set up in your milter config, and only 1 type of socket set up in your clamd config:


ClamdSocket tcp:localhost:3310
ClamdSocket unix:/var/run/clamd.scan/clamd.sock

Lines in /etc/clamd.d/scan.conf

TCPSocket 3310
TCPAddr 127.0.0.1

You should use only 1 ( TCP _or_ Unix/Local ) socket for clamd.  We recommend using Unix/Local sockets.
