It's in FAQ.
26. I'm running ClamAV on a lot of clients on my local network. Can I
mirror the database locally so that each client doesn't have to
download it from your servers?
Sure, install a proxy server and then configure your freshclam
clients to use it (watch for the HTTPProxyServer parameter in man
freshclam.conf). Alternatively you can configure a local webserver
on one of your machines (say machine1.mylan) and let freshclam
download the *.cvd files from http://database.clamav.net to the
webserver's DocumentRoot. Finally, change freshclam.conf on your
clients so that it reads:
First the database will be downloaded to the local webserver and
then the other clients on the network will update their copy of the
database from it.
