    Open VPN cannot run ./build-ca

    When I try to run I get the following error:
    Code:
    error on line 198 of /etc/openvpn/easy-rsa/openssl-1.0.0.cnf
    140224783447712:error:0E065068:configuration file routines:STR_COPY:variable has no value:conf_def.c:618:line 198
    line 198 of openssl-1.0.0.cnf reads:

    yep it works. THANKS OP!

    make sure there is a space between export and key in your VARS... unlike your post.

    then rerun:

    source vars
    ./clean-all
    ./build-ca
