Usually what I would do in this case is the following:

Add the ondrej PHP repository:

  1. sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ondrej/php

Run apt update:

  1. sudo apt-get update

Install the PHP version that you need:

  1. sudo apt-get install php7.1

Install the required modules:

  1. sudo apt-get install php7.1-cli php7.1-common php7.1-json php7.1-opcache php7.1-mysql php7.1-mbstring php7.1-mcrypt php7.1-zip php7.1-fpm

Disable PHP 7.3:

  1. sudo a2dismod php7.3

Enable the older PHP version:

  1. sudo a2enmod php7.1
  1. sudo service apache2 restart

Of course this would also depend on your current setup so make sure to take a backup of your Droplet first!
