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.
