If the Site Address contains a space at the end (which is easily noticeable) it can result in "Missing or invalid site address.":

We can improve this by sanitizing/trimming whitespace from the input.

Good catch, it makes sense to trim this before validation.

@dharmin16 44808.patch looks like a good start, however the trim() should happen before validation rather than as a part of it. In the current form, the path is still saved with a space (e.g. /path-name /) in the database. This may mean using another variable to store $blog['domain'] during validation.

Hi @jeremyfelt,

As per your advice, I've added changes. I've named the temporary variable as $raw_domain. If it's confusing, please share your suggestions.
