Just a tip for users with small servers

If you are running with a 1GB RAM server, install HestiaCP without ClamAV.

wget https://raw.githubusercontent.com/hestiacp/hestiacp/release/install/hst-install.sh

bash hst-install.sh --clamav no


I thought it was not being installed if the server had less than 1.5GB RAM but now that block is gone from hst-install-debian.sh ?

Hmm, both ClamAV and Spam Assassin were installed on my 1GB RAM server, but I wasn’t using default installation (I used flags like --clamav yes).

Would pausing the services after install have the same effect in keeping resource use to a minimum?

It should be --clamav no

You can stop it.

I personally do use antivirus nowhere. Be it desktop or server (AppArmor is an exception). I personally install AV only to servers which will be used by customers. I do not install AV to servers which will be used solely by me. As for anti-spam - I install Rspamd.
