OpenVPN Error
#1
Hello experts.
After a successful installation of OpenVPN by given link
Install Openvpn

I got error at the end while start services.
with this command:
sudo systemctl start openvpn@server

output: 

Job for openvpn@server.service failed. See 'systemctl status openvpn@server.service' and 'journalctl -xn' for details.

Would be great to get the full log instead of one with lines that are cut off at the end.

sudo journalctl -xn -l

^ Should provide the log without cut off lines. With the current log there is nothing we can do because the message is exactly cut of where it would go on with saying that exactly failed.

You can also redirect the whole output into a text file.

sudo journalctl -xn -l > journalctl.log

The messages are still cut off at the end partially as far as I can see.

You have to run the command to start the OpenVPN server and right after it fails you have to run the journalctl command.

First
sudo systemctl start openvpn@server

Second:
sudo journalctl -xn -l > journalctl.log


I thought you would understand that the error only appears in journald right after the service fails to start. Should have mentioned that in my first post already.

The client log at the current state of the server is no help at all. Since the server is not even running the client cannot connect to it.

At this moment we still require the full log of journald/journalctl right at the time of the service startup failure of the OpenVPN service.

It's been several years now that I have been using OpenVPN to create a VPN server. So other than a tutorial I once made long ago on FreeVPS.us I have no other resources for it, that I can verify that they're really working without issues. Especially on OpenVZ... which is always a little special compared to a normal server or any other hardware virtualization technology like KVM (or others).

Instead of wiping everything... I wish you would have simply posted the logs I have asked for. I could have debugged the issue further to find a solution if you had provided the information here. Sorry to say this now but I feel like wasting time on this thread.

If you want to try my OpenVPN tutorial here is the link: https://freevps.us/thread-15698.html

^ The firewall rule might not work as it is there. You have to adjust the network adapter name from eth0 to venet0 (make sure to check the network adapter on your VPS that has the public IP).

If I would need a VPN would use setup a SoftEther VPN instance (includes OpenVPN, L2TP, their own SSL VPN and more): https://freevps.us/thread-19669.html

SoftEther always worked everywhere for me.

Last but not least I can only offer the resort option to install it for you (SoftEther not OpenVPN).
