I looked online and saw that setting the DISPLAY variable like this has fixed this problem for others:
This is a misunderstanding on your side. The DISPLAY variables content should probably be ":0.0" and what you see is a command where it is set this way, then started openbox in the background with this setting. Therefore:
This is complete nonsense. If you want the DISPLAY variable to be ":0.0" (which means "use the local displays first screen for displaying your content") you should do it this way:
The real problem, though, might not be addressed yet and you might want to read up about X-Windows concepts to get a picture of what your problem is. My suspicion is that either no X-Server is running on your machine or that it is running but simply forbids other sources to use it. Issue "xhost +" as the user under which the X-Server runs to disable access control and then try again. You will still have to set the DISPLAY variable to tell the openbox-application which X-Server to use.
For a (very very short) introduction to X-Windows concepts you might want to read this.
Bakunin's suggestions did get me thinking though. I tried starting X in the background and then starting OpenBox:
It looks like Openbox may be looking for some things that art not installed. As X starts, but no Openbox. I found that there are packages for both hsetroot and esetroot with Linux, but nothing for OpenBSD:
