Configuring Apache for PHP

nano /etc/apache2/mods-available/php7.1.conf 
nano /etc/apache2/mods-available/php7.0.conf 
nano /etc/apache2/mods-available/php5.6.conf

In the above files these two lines.. like below..

#SetHandler application/x-httpd-php 
#SetHandler application/x-httpd-php-source

You can also use the command below, it would search all the files which has this so that you can remove them explicitly.

find /etc/apache2 -type f | xargs grep -i sethandler

apt-cache pkgnames | grep php5.6 
apt-cache pkgnames | grep php7.1

Disable Mod_php mode.

#php_admin_value engine Off

you can search the folder, then find and replace with the below command.. if you already had lot of websites..

find /etc/apache2 -type f | xargs grep -i php_admin_value 
sed -i 's/php_admin_value/#php_admin_value/g' /etc/apache2/sites-available/0-interstellarconsulting.com.conf

Uninstalling PHP and revert to default.

apt install ppa-purge ppa-purge ppa:ondrej/php

„Block lists“ is basically the oposite what the „allow list“ is but with more options. You can add IP’s or Email addresses directly to a „Deny List“, set a „Spamm Words List“ and many more lists which are having different criteria on why should get banned.
