I am trying to configure OpenVPN on my CentOS 7 box.

I am following this guide: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-setup-and-configure-an-openvpn-server-on-centos-7#step-1-%E2%80%94-installing-openvpn

I have got up to step 5 to actually start the openvpn@server.service, and it keeps giving me this error after running: systemctl start openvpn@server.service

Job for openvpn@server.service failed because the control process exited with error code. See "systemctl status openvpn@server.service for details.

When I run systemctl status openvpn@server.service

There is an error that says failed to start openvpn robust and highly flexible tunneling application on server.

Please help!

It was the ta.key file that was not commented out in the server.conf file.
