There is no "database1.cvd"... The 4 you listed are the only official
ones. So unless you made a mistake editing the config file, I'm not
really sure what it's trying to do.

You don't need to mess with the mirrors or anything. The files are
hosted via Cloudflare's CDN so you will automatically get the closest
server to you.

What operating system are you running? What version of ClamAV are you running?


^^^ That page will hopefully give you some answers...
