Pfsense 2.4.2_1 stuck in boot loop
« on: February 28, 2018, 12:31:28 pm »
Hi there, My name is Gozzi ufabet

I was in the middle of doing things (specifically installing the openvpn client export package )on my pfsense router from the web ui. when it restarted all of a sudden, it seemed like it was taking a while to turn back on so i went and grabbed a monitor to plug into it, to see what was happening, and it would boot to pfsense do a massive text dump then just keep rebooting and doing the same thing.  I thought this could be the hard drive failing, so i grabbed a spare drive quickly installed pfsense in it so i could at least have an internet connection.  I had a backup of my pfsense configuration, but it was old, my question is is there a way i can get that configuration file from the hdd it still spins up, i did see a recover xml configuration, when i booted up the pfsense installer, how would i go about using that.
