Summary0015800: [PATCH] LDAP bind fails with password containing special characters
DescriptionIn case the LDAP password for a user contains special characters (such as the ampersand '&' for example) binding to the LDAP service (and hence logging in to CDash) fails, as these characters were encoded to HTML entities beforehand.

The attached patch decodes all HTML entities contained in the password and allows users in a LDAP directory and a password containing special characters to log in to CDash.
Steps To Reproduce- Configure CDash to use LDAP authentication
- Create a password containing special characters for a user in a LDAP tree to log in / register on CDash (e.g. '&')
- Try to register the user / log in on CDash with the correct LDAP credentials
TagsNo tags attached.
