    152 For PKI management, we will use [https://github.com/OpenVPN/easy-rsa-old easy-rsa 2], a set of scripts which is bundled with OpenVPN 2.2.x and earlier. If you're using OpenVPN 2.3.x, you may need to download easy-rsa 2 separately from the [https://github.com/OpenVPN/easy-rsa-old easy-rsa-old project page]. An easy-rsa 2 package is also available for Debian and Ubuntu in the [wiki:OpenvpnSoftwareRepos OpenVPN software repos]. On *NIX platforms you should look into using [https://github.com/OpenVPN/easy-rsa easy-rsa 3] instead; refer to its own documentation for details.

    154156If you are using Linux, BSD, or a unix-like OS, open a shell and cd to the easy-rsa subdirectory. If you installed OpenVPN from an RPM or DEB file provided by your distribution, the easy-rsa directory can usually be found in '''/usr/share/doc/packages/openvpn''' or '''/usr/share/doc/openvpn''' (it's best to copy this directory to another location such as '''/etc/openvpn''', before any edits, so that future OpenVPN package upgrades won't overwrite your modifications).
