New Error - "Dreamweaver could not connect to the server. It's possible your SSL certificates are not installed properly"

New Error - "Dreamweaver could not connect to the server. It's possible your SSL certificates are not installed properly"

This is an odd new case. I added a DB connection for an existing site and it failed with the errors shown in the attachments.
I could use other prior sites to create DB connections and MySQLi Insert events from WA as expected.

All my server SSL Certs are installed and working fine. Does anyone know what Dreamweaver is checking to render this error?

Another test was to take a working site, duplicate it and then try the basic creation of a Connection. That failed and now on refresh of prior working sites, they are failing also.

And while my FTP connection works fine there is a new error pertaining to FTP connectivity from the WA Databases panel.
