Arducam ESP32-S Uno Pinout

I am trying to hook up an Adafruit Lora RFM9X to an Arducam ESP32-S Uno board. However, I am receiving the following error:

Failed to put device in Lora Mode

I believe this error is coming from a pin layout error when hooking up the wiring between the ESP and the Lora. More specifically, I believe the error is coming from the placement of hardware interrupt pin. Does anyone have any familiarity with the Arducam board and could offer some assistance?

Please post your code, the full error message and the schematic of your project

The full error message is the one given

I've tried a few different wiring configurations but none of them work.
These are the components used:

This code was not written for a ESP32. You'll need a pin out diagram for your make model of the ESP32 and then change and adapt this code to run on an ESP32.
