Please help me fix MySQL not allowing "&" in password

Hey @metrosuperstar – This is a known issue for Windows environments:

Can you upvote the linked bug to help us gauge how often it occurs? Until a fix can be implemented, I think you’ll have to avoid using that character in a password when creating a new site.

If you absolutely need that character within the password, then I think you should be able to use a simpler password, and then update it after the site has been created.
