# Ubuntu – How to manually import the clamav virus definition file

clamav

I would like to manually download the main.cvd for clamav and then import it from a local location. I see this is possible using clamav-clamfresh if I configure it to use DatabaseMirror machine1.example.com but that requires running an http webserver on port 80 of machine1.example.com which I don't want to do.

If I get the main.cvd file onto a machine is there some way to manually trigger the import?

#!/bin/bash
