So I have a Ubuntu Wordpress Droplet. It has worked fine for a while and has been up to date via apt-get and wordpress. I do not run nginex as this is a very simple site.
I upgraded to Ubuntu 16.04 and now my site shows a blank page. If I go to the <url>/wp-admin page I see a bunch of raw php / html. I did a service apache2 reload / restart and this did not help.
PHP -v shows this
