Description

With the following config snippet (some info redacted), pfsense reports:

php-fpm[71756]: /services_dyndns_edit.php: phpDynDNS (home): (Error) Not a valid username or password!

After changing the password in OpenDNS to something that had different special characters, the issue is resolved (ie OpenDNS is updated properly).

<dyndnses>
    <dyndns>
        <type>opendns</type>
        <username>XXX-redacted-XXX</username>
        <password>dy[&gt;9nk?27ymz2u2khWVTi}2Mkra?yPRuBW[,9QR4U27&gt;Qz*C+</password>
        <host>home</host>
        <domainname/>
        <mx/>
        <enable/>
        <interface>wan</interface>
        <zoneid/>
