If I attempt to access .php files, I'm offered them as downloads,

amongst my apache config


<IfModule mod_php7.c>
       <FilesMatch "\.ph(p[345]?|tml)$">
           SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
       <FilesMatch "\.php[345]?s$">
           SetHandler application/x-httpd-php-source
        DirectoryIndex index.php4
        DirectoryIndex index.php5
        DirectoryIndex index.php

Just change it to

<IfModule  mod_php7.c>
   <FilesMatch \.php$>
      SetHandler application/x-httpd-php
   <FilesMatch \.phps$>
      SetHandler application/x-httpd-php-source
   DirectoryIndex index.php

If you really need .php3 .php4 .php5 add them as separate FilesMatch directives.

Lot of stuff in php3/4 is deprecated on php7 so scripts written for php that ancient are not likely to work unless they are very simple, and I don't recall .php5 ever being an extension ever officially being promoted.

.php3 was because some servers had both php3 and php4 but I don't even recall .php4 being an officially endorsed extension, let alone .php5.

Thanks for the suggestion, but it still doesn't work: .php files are still offered for download rather than being executed. Now that I've made the change you suggested, .php3 files don't work either unsurprisingly. There has to be something else in my configuration that specifically stops .php files being executed but doesn't stop .php3. I have no idea where to look.
