    Trying to install WordPress and when I get to the Welcome page and enter my email in the welcome page to install WordPress I get an error.

    I enter the Site Title, enter the username as xxxx@xxx.ca select the password created and press Install WordPress button. It then shows an error message saying that the email is not valid.

    Verified no spaces in front or back of email address.

    Don’t understand the issue. Help please!

    The page I need help with: [log in to see the link]

    You said you put an email in as username, but didn’t mention what you did for admin email. Username can be anything you like within reason, but the admin email field needs to be a valid email address. If the admin email has accented characters, that could be a reason for it to be seen as invalid.
