Once you provide a few initial configuration settings,
OpenVPN Access Server can be configured by accessing
its Admin Web UI using your Web browser.

Will this be the primary Access Server node?
(enter 'no' to configure as a backup or standby node)
> Press ENTER for default [yes]:

Please specify the network interface and IP address to be
used by the Admin Web UI:
(1) all interfaces: 0.0.0.0
(2) venet0: 128.167.***.216
(3) venet0:0: 128.167.***.216
(4) venet0:1: 128.167.***.205
(5) venet0:2: 128.167.***.206
(6) venet0:3: 128.167.***.207
Please enter the option number from the list above (1-6).
> Press Enter for default [2]:

Please specify the port number for the Admin Web UI.
> Press ENTER for default [943]:

Please specify the TCP port number for the OpenVPN Daemon
> Press ENTER for default [1194]:

Should client traffic be routed by default through the VPN?
> Press ENTER for default [yes]:

Should client DNS traffic be routed by default through the VPN?
> Press ENTER for default [yes]:

Use local authentication via internal DB?
> Press ENTER for default [no]:

Should private subnets be accessible to clients by default?
> Press ENTER for default [yes]:

To initially login to the Admin Web UI, you must use a
username and password that successfully authenticates you
with the host UNIX system (you can later modify the settings
so that RADIUS or LDAP is used for authentication instead).

You can login to the Admin Web UI as "openvpn" or specify
a different user account to use for this purpose.

Do you wish to login to the Admin UI as "openvpn"?
> Press ENTER for default [yes]:

> Please specify your OpenVPN-AS license key (or leave blank to specify later):
None

to perform correctly. Please ensure that your time and date
are correct on this system.

Initial Configuration Complete!

You can now continue configuring OpenVPN Access Server by
directing your Web browser to this URL:

https://128.167.***.216:943/admin
Login as "openvpn" with the same password used to authenticate
to this UNIX host.

During normal operation, OpenVPN AS can be accessed via these URLs:
Admin UI: https://128.167.***.216:943/admin
Client UI: https://128.167.***.216:943/

So what is bothersome is that it says that openvpn is not installed yet according to the install process it is installed....

Must I uninstall and try some other thing? (Yum install openvpn didn't work either)

Answer:

The hosting company has refused to make openvpn available.

Simple as that.
