OpenVPN doesn't work today

Today I can’t connect to my OpenVPN. Just “waiting for server” and nothing more. Yesterday and for a whole month it worked as smooth as butter. What should I do to fix it? No changes were made, so my noob’s level of administrating don’t play a role)))

SSH works, server runs, so it seems, that only OpenVPN makes such troubles.

you need to check your log file to see the action history for tracking, and then try to open incognito and restart it, it might work.

I would recommend logging in and:

  1. Restarting your OpenVPN service with service openvpn restart
  2. Checking the logs created by OpenVPN in /var/log/syslog
