Joomla site stopped working after PHP upgrade

Hello! I have a web site running Joomla 3.9.6. The PHP version was 7.1, I upgraded it to 7.3. Since the upgrade, the site doesn't work anymore. The error is as follows:

Warning: session_start(): Failed to read session data: user (path: /tmp) in /home2/excella/public_html/libraries/joomla/session/handler/native.php on line 260
Error: Failed to start application: Failed to start the session
(the site's URL is excellagroup.org)

I downloaded the Forum Post Assistant and ran it on the site, the results are posted below. Can you please give me a hand?

Potential Missing Extensions :: xml | zip | curl | iconv | mbstring | mysqli | pdo_mysql

Database Configuration :: Connection Error: PHP function mysqli_connect not found.
You may be able to select the missing PHP extensions from the PHP options for different versions in the cPanel provided by your host.

The error is caused by the missing mysqli extension, but make sure that you select also xml, zip, curl, iconv and mbstring.

As @Webdongle recommended, ensure that all third party extensions are uptodate and support PHP 7.3.

Update then to the latest Joomla version 3.9.20 but make a full backup first.

Methinks order should be
Revert the php back to a version that worked
make a backup
Then update 3rd party extensions
Then update Joomla
make a backup
Then sort out the newer php version.

Reasoning ... if you fix the newer php version and fail to fully correct it then trying to update Joomla may fail part way through the process.

Components >>> Joomla update >>> check for updates ... reinstall core files
(updates only replace some of the files hence replace core files)
Make a backup
Update php and see if the site works then?

Wait up. I just realized there's an update to the template I'm using. Let me revert PHP version and apply it...

You have not activated the php extensions pointed out by @toivo. Especially the mysqli.
Please contact your Host to activate those extensions and restart php.

I spoke to the host, they were able to address the missing PHP modules issues.
Thanks a million for your help!
