Not sure why, but it errors. This is an upgrade from pupper 4 directory site.pp is 755 and site.pp/ is 644, so no read issues

client error is telling me it's a directory (which of course I know). Error: Could not retrieve catalog from remote server: Error 500 on SERVER: {"message":"Server Error: Could not parse for environment production: Is a directory - /etc/puppetlabs/code/environments/production/manifests/site.pp on node","issuekind":"RUNTIMEERROR"}

tried googling, to no avail.

Just to be absolutely certain, that this _is_ the error: Have you tried putting a regular file `site.pp` in place (just with all your `site.pp/*.pp` concatenated [syntax respected])? You may wanna file a ticket

confirmed. Works absolutely fine with plain-old-file site.pp (using it that way now after merging)
