The issue was that the .htaccess had the following lie of code:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php53 .php

But for this particular server, it needed to be as follows:
AddHandler application/x-httpd-php5 .php

Making that change brought your site back up for you. It is now running as it should.
It is also recommended to stay up to date with the current version of your software. This would have prevented needing the necessary change and will also ensure you have the most secure version running. You do not want your site to be hacked by an exploit in an older version of the software.

Kindest Regards,
