Enabling ClamAV on Nextcloud

ClamAV needs to be installed on the Nextcloud host for the Nextcloud’s Antivirus App to work. I am using TurnKey Linux (TKL) Nextcloud and TKL based image is Debian. To install ClamAV

# Turnkey Linux
apt install -y clamav clamav-daemon

# Debian/CentOS (Docker)
docker exec -it nextcloud bash
apt install -y clamav clamav-daemon

# Univention distro
univention-app shell nextcloud
apt install -y clamav clamav-daemon

After installing the ClamAV, go back to the Nextcloud App Store search and download and enable the app Antivirus for files. The setting for this app can be found in the Settings > Administration > Security > Antivirus for Files as shown in Figure 1.

Figure 1

Once the ClamAV has been installed, we need to update its database. Login to the Docker container.

# Turnkey Linux
freshclam

# Debian/CentOS (Docker)
docker exec -it nextcloud bash
freshclam

# Univention distro
univention-app shell nextcloud
freshclam

That’s about it. This is one of the easiest app to install. Hope you’ll find this helpful.

Cheers!
