OpenVPN - Generating certificate authority stucks



The certificate generation process has been stuck for days. Is there any way to terminate it manually?

I was able to solve the problem myself. After I found the reference to the OpenVPN folder in the code, I just deleted it.

After rebooting, I was able to restart the certificate generation process. The folder was then rebuilt and the certificate was created within minutes.


I meet similar trouble. Do you think /etc/ssl/ca/openvpn/* or /etc/dhparam/dh-default.pem?


Just delete everything within /etc/ssl/ca/openvpn/.

I wrote a couple of comments how I escaped the “hell of ca-generation” and succesfully configured OpenVPN on my Turris Omnia in another discussion thread:
