I have a question about daily.cvd and daily.cld files. If I understood
correctly, those two files are almost the same : one is compressed, the
other is not.
Still I have an issue in my setup :

If I put both filtes in apache2 server (which act as PrivateMirror) :

-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data 117892267 07.06.2017 23:38 main.cvd
-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data    153228 07.12.2017 03:17 bytecode.cvd
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     root             8 05.01.2018 10:14 main.cld ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     root             9 05.01.2018 10:14 daily.cld ->
lrwxrwxrwx 1 root     root            12 05.01.2018 10:14 bytecode.cld ->
-rw-r--r-- 1 www-data www-data  43804052 10.01.2018 06:17 daily.cvd

On the client side I have this Warning :

LibClamAV Warning: Detected duplicate databases /var/lib/clamav/daily.cvd
and /var/lib/clamav/daily.cld, please manually remove one of them

But If I remove the *.cld files on my PrivateMirror I got multiples 404
errors from the Freshclam clients.

Is there a way to configure Freshclam in order to grabe only the cvd files

Best regards,
