Description

After a shutdown/filesystem error I got on boot:

XML configuration file not found. pfSense cannot continue booting.

then system halted

This is not a very useful behavior in this situation,
I think is better to do a factory reset or switch to single-user mode instead of just halting the system

  • Category changed from Diagnostics to Configuration Backend
  • Target version set to 2.5.0

We already have some code that could handle this, which restores the last good backup when invalid XML is detected. It should be viable, or maybe code a work-alike in sh: source:src/etc/inc/config.lib.inc#L229

With this PR it goes forward and shows a console menu that allow you to make a factory reset for example:
