    Default Errors in log file

    Running the latest non beta release 3.1.4 on Suse 10 retail. Going through my log files I noticed this error below
    ERROR: Parse error at line 70: Option Checks requires numerical argument.
    ERROR: Can't parse the config file /opt/zimbra/conf/freshclam.conf
    ERROR: Parse error at line 70: Option Checks requires numerical argument.
    ERROR: Can't parse the config file /opt/zimbra/conf/freshclam.conf

    This seems to be tied to how often freshclam will update clamav. Here are lines 67-70 I have never change any flat files in zimbra so this was done on install and seem to be in error. Is there any harm in change the flat file to ensure proper operation of the updates?

    67 # Number of database checks per day.
    68 # Default: 12 (every two hours)
    69 #Checks 24
    70 Checks 4.8

    This is controlled by the the AS/AV update setting. What is yours set too? Default is 2 and if you changed it that may have caused the decimal to appear. If so it's a bug we should prevent that in the UI and/or the script that generates the config file.

    FWIW, the value you enter is actually interpreted as "checks per day" (it's a freshclam setting) so for every 2 hours, set it to 12 (the default). For every hour, set it to 24. Once per day, set it to 1.
