Take a look at the Processes on the status.php page

Like for all daemons in m0n0wall, the configuration is generated on the 
fly. For OpenVPN, it's in /etc/openvpn.inc (line 125):

mwexec("/usr/local/sbin/openvpn " . ovpn_srv_config_generate());

Take a look at the code: it's easy to read and you can learn a lot!

Just go to the OpenVPN Serve page and press the SAVE button without 
modifying anything.

It's "ovpn".
(again, read the sources, it's in the rootfs-1.2b2.tar.gz archive)

Just to be sure: send a message to Manuel (mk at neon1 dot net).
