Tunneling VPS traffic through VPN (Using VPS as OpenVPN Client)

I am trying to tunnel the traffic coming from a VPS through a VPN but it doesn't seem to be working.

The current .ovpn file that I am using seems to work just fine on my local machine, but when I launch it on the VPS it just hangs here:

Thu Aug 13 01:23:47 2015 UDPv4 link remote: [undef]

I have been googling for hours and can't find an answer, so I am assuming it is simple, but I don't have the experience to answer it on my own.

It seems to not be binding and not connecting to the remote IP address. What am I doing wrong?
