  • In the /etc/apache2/apache2.conf file where did you add AllowOverride All? It should be within the following:

    <Directory /var/www/>
            Options Indexes FollowSymLinks
            AllowOverride All
            Require all granted

@levan100: Check out How To Install Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP (LAMP) stack on Ubuntu 14.04 | DigitalOcean. This tutorial will guide you through installing a webserver (Apache), PHP, and MySQL.

Once you've done that, you will need to create a MySQL user and database for your application, see How To Create a New User and Grant Permissions in MySQL | DigitalOcean.
You'll probably want to install phpMyAdmin too: How To Install and Secure phpMyAdmin on Ubuntu 14.04 | DigitalOcean.

To transfer your application's files to your droplet, you should use SFTP which is more secure than FTP: How To Use Filezilla to Transfer and Manage Files Securely on your VPS | DigitalOcean. The files should go in /var/www/html.
