I'm setting up VPN from expressvpn.org, and I'm following this directions.

I've installed openvpn using:

sudo apt-get install -y openvpn

and placed a .ovpn, .key and .crt files from expressvpn.biz in /etc/openvpn:

user@pegasus:/etc/openvpn$ ls
ca.crt      client.key                    my_expressvpn_israel_udp.ovpn  my_expressvpn_uk_-_isle_of_man_udp.ovpn  update-resolv-conf
client.crt  my_expressvpn_egypt_udp.ovpn  my_expressvpn_russia_udp.ovpn  ta.key

But when I run openvpn I get this error:

user@pegasus:/etc/openvpn$ sudo openvpn my_expressvpn_israel_udp.ovpn

Options error: You must define CA file (--ca) or CA path (--capath)

all help is appreciated.
