How do I install it?
1. Make sure that your VPS has its TUN module working.

Run the following command to check: cat /dev/net/tun

Your VPS TUN module is set correctly if you get this message:

cat: /dev/net/tun: No such file or directory

If you do not get this message, please enable TUN from our Virtualizor control panel located at You can find your login information in your VPS Welcome Email.

From there, select the VPS you are using, then select "VPS Configuration" and make sure the "Enable Tun/Tap" checkbox is checked. 

2. Now, to install OpenVPN simply login to your server via SSH, and enter the following:

wget --no-check-certificate -O; chmod +x; ./
