Oh oh oh …. found a problem with a cable built must be eight years ago. Pinning was wrong. Fixed it and the connection works just fine
Found where my image upload was mis-configured. I have the right write permissions on the folder I was uploading to …but the path in WP was wrong. I do not remember changing the path but took a look at Settings –> Miscellaneous –> Uploading and set things right there.
Have choir practice so gotta go!! cya.
