OpenVPN custom options may fail after save/restore
Sometimes after restoring a backup XML file, custom options get formatted improperly. That prevents the OpenVPN service from starting.
The same fix may be applied. Please see the link below for more details:

OpenVPN directives are to be separated by semicolons, not newlines. That's stated in the text above the box and in the docs. It's always been that way. Anything else may happen to work by accident but as stated here, it's not reliable, hence the semicolons.
We could maybe consider changing that in the future as a feature request but as it stands there is no bug here.
