Drupal 8.5.5 Install on Hostgator Composer Render Errors.

I’ve installed on hostgator and gotten past the “trusted_host_patterns” step so Reports Status comes out clean. I am able to navigate through the installed site. 

1. But I can’t log out of the initial install and get back in.

2. I can’t create a new user.

3. I can’t run cron.

4. I can’t create content and save it.

5. I can’t create content and preview it. 

I have hostgator pointed to PHP version 7.1. Should I step it down?

Recent error logs shows an access denied whenever I try to create content or users:

SymfonyComponentHttpKernelExceptionBadRequestHttpException: No contextual ids specified. in DrupalcontextualContextualController->render() (line 56 of /home1/acgarcia/public_html/alyssaggarcia2/core/modules/contextual/src/ContextualController.php).

With a hostname of:

<An IP address I will leave out of the forum>

I tried adding this IP address to my trusted host patterns. Still does not work. The hostgator mysql login has all the access it needs otherwise it wouldn’t be able to install drupal 8.5 in the first place.

Not sure where to go from here other than installing on my local mac until I can figure out what is going wrong.

Thanks for any ideas you might have on next steps.
