Admin password doesn't support double quote

Issue Summary

When creating a new site, I was always getting an error that told me the admin_email parameter wasn’t set. I realised that the " in my password was confusing the script into thinking it was looking at a string open.

Ultimately it’s an easy fix, just don’t use that character. But wanted to mention it so you could either sanitise it or prevent use of that character.
