Description

I've been using Openvpn 2.4.4 on an Ubuntu instance on AWS for about a year... currently 18.04.. Recently (a month or two back, I think) I started noticing that the openvpn-status.log file was empty, size 0. Aside from the incongruity this is obviously inconvenient from a network management point of view.

The VPN seems to work normally except for the empty -status.log. Anyone have any thoughts about what might be causing this?
