Question

php no longer rendering on LAMP after updates

I recently updated Ubuntu and updated most of the apps. Somewhere along the way php got updated and is no longer being rendered, it shows up as a text file. Php works from the command line, and returns appropriate version information (7.0.15). Apache shows php7_module in the module list and is otherwise working fine. Restarting Apache didn’t help.

Fixed it!

php7 used a new config file which didn’t have the mod_userdir lines commented out to allow user directories access.

  1. Try to run: sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-php then sudo a2dismod mpm_event finally: sudo a2enmod mpm_prefork and check your webapp. Hopefully, it should have resolved.

  2. If not, Then: sudo apt-get install php-fpm Finally: a2enconf php7.0-fpm

In 90% chances, it should resolve.
