Installing on shell account

To install ClamAV locally on an unprivileged shell account you need not create any additional users or groups. Assuming your home directory is /home/gary you should build it as follows:
	$ ./configure --prefix=/home/gary/clamav --disable-clamav
	$ make; make install
To test your installation execute:
	$ ~/clamav/bin/freshclam
	$ ~/clamav/bin/clamscan ~
The --disable-clamav switch disables the check for existence of the clamav user and group but clamscan would still require an unprivileged account to work in a superuser mode.
