I have transferred my index.html and index.css files to /var/www location.
It page that shows up it:

Not Found

Make sure you transfered it to /var/www/html/, not to /var/ww/.

By default, LAMP stack looks for files in /var/www/html, if you didn’t change any Virtual Host setting.

as he said your files should be in the default of apache2
/var/www/html/, not to /var/ww/.
