I thought so. You should have found that out yourself and told here in your first

Nothing. So far I haven't seen a reason to change it from the default.
There is *NO* instruction in that short tutorial that tells you to do this. So, 
simply leave it where it was and tell amavisd where to find that socket!
I remember you had the exact same problem some weeks ago, when you also changed 
the clamd socket for some obscure reason and it stopped working. Didn't you learn 
from that? You can't just change those paths for fun. The program has to be able 
to write to that new path, of course!
