I am working through the "Get Started" section of the "AWS CloudFormation" guide. In "Step 4: Create the stack" there is an instruction: Select Provide an S3 URL to template. In the box below, type or paste the URL for the sample WordPress template, and then click Continue: (

However, running this results in the error: Template validation error: must begin with a letter and contain only alphanumeric characters

I have tied uploading the file instead but it resulted in the same error.

How do I get past this?

Can you explain better how this question is relevant to OpenStack?
