Did you enable your site? What's in your /etc/apache2/sites-enabled directory?
default, and only that.

This tutorial shows you how to set up a new directory, how to grant the correct permissions, how to add content to a new page, how to turn on virtual hosting, and how to, if needed, set up local hosts. Virtual Hosts are used to run more than one domain off of a single IP address and allows you to run multiple sites off of a single DigitalOcean droplet. This tutorial describes how to set up virtual hosts with Apache.
I know how to do that... but only my apache2.2.22 doesn't work correctly... :/
OH! I see what's wrong, I did AllowOverride Alll on accident, I put one too many L's. Fixed and working.
