Simple web UI to manage OpenVPN users, their certificates & routes in Linux. While backend is written in Go, frontend is based on Vue.js.


  • Adding users (generating certificates for them);
  • Revoking/restoring users certificates;
  • Generating ready-to-user config files;
  • Providing metrics for Prometheus, including certifications expiration date, number of (connected/total) users, information about connected users;
  • (optionally) Specifying CCD (client-config-dir) for each user;
  • (optionally) Operating in a master/slave mode (syncing certs & CCD with other server);
  • (optionally) Specifying/changing password for additional authorization in OpenVPN.



This tool uses external calls for bash, core-utils and easyrsa, thus Linux systems only are supported at the moment.

1. Docker

There is a ready-to-use docker-compose.yaml, so you can just change/add values you need and start it with start.sh.

Requirements. You need Docker and docker-compose installed.

Commands to execute:

git clone https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin.git
cd ovpn-admin

2. Building from source

Requirements. You need Linux with the following components installed:

Commands to execute:

git clone https://github.com/flant/ovpn-admin.git
cd ovpn-admin

(Please don't forgot to configure all needed params in advance.)

3. Prebuilt binary (WIP)

You can also download & use prebuilt binaries from the releases page — just choose a relevant tar.gz file.
