PHP Not Working After Following Tutorial On Setting Up (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu 14.04

Hello! I started a new Ubuntu 14.04 droplet and followed the tutorial here: https://www.digitalocean.com/community/tutorials/how-to-install-linux-apache-mysql-php-lamp-stack-on-ubuntu-14-04

Everything seemed to be going ok until i setup a simple test php page that just had php_info() on it. When I attempted to view the page online I got an HTTP Error 500. My apache error log reported:

[Sat Jul 30 12:38:01.847132 2016] [:error] [pid 6164] [client xx.xx.xx.xx:51976] PHP Fatal error: Call to undefined function php_info() in /var/www/html/info.php on line 3

Unsure what to do from here. Doing a php -v from the command line confirms PHP is installed and i’m not seeing errors (I did reboot Apache several times):

PHP 5.5.9-1ubuntu4.17 (cli) (built: May 19 2016 19:05:57) Copyright © 1997-2014 The PHP Group Zend Engine v2.5.0, Copyright © 1998-2014 Zend Technologies with Zend OPcache v7.0.3, Copyright © 1999-2014, by Zend Technologies

Googling for this didn’t seem to solve the problem. Suggestions?
