Database password requirements - Lacking error message

As I was trying to install V9, I generated a random database password from my cPanel - something like n867z1rM^$TT (which I have now changed). This resulted in the error "There was an error while processing your request". The actual problem was the specific special characters (it is validates as text/password).

1) I had to look through multiple files to find the problem - some feedback on where the problem is would be nice - and maybe a list of accepted characters.
2) Not really an issue for me, but I'd imagine some wasted time having to change a password used in multiple applications on the server, or one that can only be changed by someone else. I'm no expert, but one might wonder is these restrictions are really necessary. :)
I´ll add it as an issue. Ty : https://github.com/php-fusion/PHP-Fusion/issues/2198
