[clamav-users] Stream scanning

If clamd is running on the system, it would automatically monitor the directory? Or how can I set to continuously monitor that directory and do the steps that needed?

So based on your suggestion the 2nd step would be the last step and in the 2nd step would scan clamd the files, but how would it monitor and how would it report? I created a script for a daily scan but it is just a scan not a real time monitoring.

the file is already stored as file on web server, there's no need for
messing with it. clamd can scan it there, it just neede proper permissions
for reading uploaded files.
