how to revoke a missed cert on openvpn ?

I am using webmin to manage my openvpn certificates , someday ago I generated a certificate for a user , today I revoked his certificate using webmin , but he is still able to connect to my OPENVPN server ! I really dont know why , seems the certificate is not revoked properly.
the problem is that webmin has deleted the users certificate from the server , so I can not revoke it manually , is there a solution to revoke a missed certificate ? for example when he is connected , using management console I can revoke his certificate ?
any thoughts ?

thank you for your reply , no it is not in there , seems webmin is not revoking the certs properly.
I have file 11.pem which belongs to the certificate which I want to revoke. ( I found out it from the common name of certificate which existed in 11.pem ) , is there anyway I could use this file to revoke this certificate ?
I found out why webmin is unable to revoke certs , I tried to revoke a cert manually and got the following error :
14852:error:0E065068:configuration file routines:STR_COPY:variable has no value:conf_def.c:629:line 10

I am using openssl 0.9.7a
What commands have You tried?
Thank you for your help :-)
