Beowulf - Wordpress and PHP 7.3

I had been having a quick look at WordPress, to understand what my colleagues were talking about!
I had got it running under ASCII, but after upgrading to Beowulf, it stopped working, just displaying PHP code.
I believe that the problem was caused by going from PHP 5 to PHP 7.3. This was fixed by enabling the php7.3 module

a2enmod php7.3
Considering dependency mpm_prefork for php7.3:
Considering conflict mpm_event for mpm_prefork:
Considering conflict mpm_worker for mpm_prefork:
Module mpm_prefork already enabled
Considering conflict php5 for php7.3:
Enabling module php7.3.
To activate the new configuration, you need to run:
  service apache2 restart

service apache2 restart
[ ok ] Restarting Apache httpd web server: apache2.

The pages now display correctly. I have only to remember the password and then I can carry on seeing what WordPress is about!
