Also check the location of clamav. When I updated a few weeks ago, in addition to the user change from clam to clamav they moved the packages from /var/lib/clamav to /var/clamav. I found clue in the logs in /var/log/clamav/. Check the freshclam.conf and/or clamd.conf files – they specify the location of the databases.

Is clamd running as the same user as before? They moved from clam to clamav at some version not too long ago.

It seems ClamAV got updated on my CentOS 5.x machine but since the update,
it stopped working.
I see this error from the /var/log/maillog:

MailScanner: ClamAV Module ERROR:: Could not load databases from /var/clamav
I checked /var/clamav it looks ok, also wiped out the databases there and
then ren freshclam but no luck. Permissions also seem to be ok
