OpenVPN service won't start after installation - Debian conf file not found

Post by central » Wed Dec 11, 2019 12:36 am

Hi,

Debian Stretch VPS

I've recently installed the Open VPN package which when attempting to start gives the following error

Code: Select all

Options error: In [CMD-LINE]:1: Error opening configuration file: /etc/openvpn/server.conf
I've found the conf file is located in /etc/openvpn/server/

How do I make the system see the location of the file?

Output of sudo openvpn --config /etc/openvpn/server/server.conf

Code: Select all

Options error: --dh fails with 'dh.pem': No such file or directory
Options error: --ca fails with 'ca.crt': No such file or directory
Options error: --cert fails with 'server.crt': No such file or directory

Options error: --key fails with 'server.key': No such file or directory
Options error: --crl-verify fails with 'crl.pem': No such file or directory
