Both of these errors indicate that your Apache-to-Tomcat connection is not 
set up correctly. Apache doesn't know that it's supposed to be passing 
requests to Tomcat.

Edit tomcat-apache.conf as in the installation instructions. Note that you 
need to tell Apache to use that configuration file (see Tomcat docs). Was 
that the step you forgot? I think I should add that to the docs.
