So close but... any help is appreciated

can’t seem to find anything close on the board.

Solid servers can be a) a Pod provider b) an Identity Provider or c) Both. is both as is So when that dropdown asks for an Identity provider, it is not asking for your WebID, it is asking the origin - the place you got your WebID from. If your WebID was issued by, then you should put that in, not your full WebID, if you get the same response, that means that the server’s Identity Provider is not spec compliant.

wow thanks for the info. totally a tourist here. link to my home-server is with a zero … currently returning the pwdirectory… running a very simple reverse-proxy with nginx. thanks again.
