thank you very much for your time

You can test the vpn connection:

openvpn myconfig.ovpn
If you get the Initialization Sequence Completed message, then the config file is ok.

Maybe you must open the .ovpn file and change the auth-user-pass line to:
auth-user-pass /path/to/username/password
First line of this file will be username, second line password.

If it works you can apply a client manual to setup the vpn:

thanks for the guide . I searched high and low - all over the internet as well and didn't find this guide but this is what i did find from this site https://openwrt.org/docs/guide-user/services/vpn/openvpn/client-luci which indicates that after 19.07.02 uploading a file is a OK. I'm guessing it 's not - t maybe they should take this guide down. The guided you and Peter have referenced. are much more helpful for folks.
