Is need to set AWS_ID to digital ocean key
AWS_SECRET = digitalocean api secret key

Is correct?

You need to configure all these ENV variables.
AWS_ID=
AWS_SECRET=
AWS_BUCKET_NAME=
AWS_UPLOAD_REGION=

And for those values you need to create a space in digital ocean, not just your VPS. Use this like to know more about spaces.

Also, first try to understand a bit more about Forem, rather than focusing just on making it live. If you want to self-host Forem, knowing about is important. Or else you can wait for a while and launch your Forem using Forem-Cloud(I'm expecting that Forem might release a premium hosting plan of their own)
