OpenVPN AS Web Server Periodically Breaks

Post by TeleBrady » Wed Oct 05, 2022 6:00 pm


Every once in a while the web server for OpenVPN AS (x2.8.5) will break in my environment and prevents anyone from accessing the web interface (user or admin). To fix this it requires a server restart.

I don't see anything in the Log Reports that correlate to the web server going down. Can anyone point me in the right direction for where to look to determine what's causing the web server to fail?

Hi TeleBrady,

I have 2 things to mention about this. One is that there is a known instability in the web interface if the amount of OpenVPN daemons is configured higher than the amount of CPU cores you have. If you have a 2 core system you should have 2 TCP daemons and 2 UDP daemons. The other is that 2.8.5 is really old and you should upgrade that to 2.11.0 or such.

Kind regards,
