I'm not sure about daemon.log but IIRC openvpn logs into /var/log/syslog
(but I can't check this for sure as I'm not at my home PC). If you're
still not getting anything from it I'd check the verbosity setting in
your openvpn.conf file (see the verb parameter in man openvpn).

Asking Google I learned that some logger are no long supported and
some

additional configuration has to be done in
/etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf. After enabling the 'daemon.log' I
restarted the log-service to see why the openvpn-server is not
working.
In the former Ubuntu-version (10) openvpn (and other daemons) wrote
its

logging to the daemon.log. Even tough I enabled the daemon logging
openvpn still refuses to log. Generally it remains the questions
where

the log output of all the daemons can be found (syslog?). How can I
'persuade' daemons like openvpn to use now the rsyslog?

In Ubuntu 10.x openvpn has logged into syslog, however now (11.10) I
can't find there any log messages. Configuring the
/etc/rsyslog.d/50-default.conf to activate the "selectors" didn't help.
Then I checked the verbosity setting in the config-file for openvpn and
now I get some logs - but not in /var/log. I found them in the
/etc/openvpn - directory.
