    You need to either downfload cert file (via sftp) either copy/paste cert files content and save it to your computer (and then import it to your OpenVPN client).
    Second part isn't that ideal as some blank spaces or something may cause issue, so the download is the way to go.
    For SFTP use some free client as Filezilla and enter same IP/port/password as for SSH. Depend from what script you used, your certs may be in one configuraton file with .ovpn extension.

    Don't forget to install OpenVPN client on your local computer and import cert / .ovpn file to the vpn client.

    Take a look in /etc/openvpn maybe?

    I don't know where your script saved it. Did you check in root directory? ls -all

    Try command: find . -name *.ovpn as a root

    You should ask your provider or read theirs Knowledge database/FAQ/e-mails. Preinstalled OpenVPN is not something happening by default so the image you installed was probably created/adjusted by your provider and they have all the info somewhere on theirs website, welcome e-mails etc.

  • He's not most clear about all this, so it's more or less just guessing. He's talking about preinstalled openvpn and then about some script install, so I assume that it's something like Nyr's openvpn-install.sh script which put .ovpn file in root dir.

    /etc/openvpn/ and see some other folder

    easy-rsa , server , client. but not found .ovpn

    Look in the client folder then for OpenVPN client configuration file(s).

    The server.conf would be OpenVPN's configuration file.

    Then do what I said.

    ssh to your server
    cd /
    find . -name *.ovpn
    (under the assumption that you're running some sort of linux)

    client folder is empty , no file or subfolder/
    also server folder empty

    This is it. In your root dir just as assumed.

    Try find / -name *.ovpn as root.

    If you don't see any *.ovpn files, then it's safe to say that no client files were created - only the installation of OVPN exists.

    Read my first post above!

    1. download client.ovpn to your computer
    2. import it to your OpenVPN client installed on your computer

  • I think we need to go from the beginning.

    1. Use some free sftp program like Filezilla or WinSCP and log in as root (same IP, port and root password as SSH) and simply download client.ovpn to your computer
    2. Install on your computer OpenVPN client (google for: OpenVPN Connect v3)
    3. Run OpenVPN client on your computer and click left on the top "Import profile" then "File" and browse/load previously downloaded client.ovpn
