[Resolved] "ERROR: you must provide an e-mail address.

  • When i try to install i can’t get to the stage where i populate the DB, i get stuck on the email address bit “”ERROR: you must provide an e-mail address.”

    I had initially moved my wordpress from my XAMPP but i could not login to the dashboard. So i decided to run a fresh installation and i get stuck on the email address. ““ERROR: you must provide an e-mail address.”

    I have bee struggling for 2 days, please help.

    – confirm all files/folders got uploaded. Also, confirm they got uploaded to the rihgt location.
    – Make sure your wp-config.php is correct.
    – try different computer/different browser.
    – if all that information is correct your database may have problem with it, and you may need to contact your your hosting provider.

    I found the problem, i removed these two lines from my php.ini file.

    php_value upload_max_filesize 16M
    php_value post_max_size 16Ms

    And everything is now sorted. They should add a feature on wordpress that checks the server environment first. It will solve all these installation issues.
