My Linux shared hosting (godaddy) doesn't have ClamAV installed. Unfortunately, I'm not a Linux expert; so I don't know exactly what is involved in installing an application on a Linux. So, my question is:

  1. Can I install ClamAV on my shared hosting?
  2. If I can't install it, is it possible to still use it somehow?

Thanks, James

Why would you want to run it? I would expect any host worth their snuff to have some form of antivirus/protection, even if it isn't needed. –  dkuntz2 Apr 22 '11 at 1:57

  1. No

  2. Probably not. It needs to run on the server so unless there is a way to run it virtually, I'm not a hosting guru but I'm pretty sure there's not, you won't be able to do this unless you get a dedicated box or VPS.
