Thanks again for the helpful replies. I followed those instructions. Now the
error message is gone, and I can go to X.X.X.X (my IP address) and see
what's sitting in /var/www/testing. However, going to either of the
subdomains of my IP address, production.X.X.X.X or testing.X.X.X.X, still
doesn't work; I get an "Address not Found" error in my browser. I tried
Jeff, Krist, and Andre's solutions with similar results..

Here is the current output of apache2ctl -S:

apache2: Could not reliably determine the server's fully qualified domain
name, using for ServerName
VirtualHost configuration:
wildcard NameVirtualHosts and _default_ servers:
*:80                   is a NameVirtualHost
         default server testing.X.X.X.X
         port 80 namevhost testing.X.X.X.X
         port 80 namevhost production.X.X.X.X
Syntax OK

Here is what my /etc/apache2/sites-enabled/000-default file looks like (per
Krist's advice, I emptied httpd.conf):
NameVirtualHost *:80
<VirtualHost *:80>
             DocumentRoot /var/www/testing
             ServerName testing.X.X.X.X
<VirtualHost *:80>
             DocumentRoot /var/www/production
             ServerName production.X.X.X.X

Can anyone spot if something is wrong here?

Maybe I'll back up for a second and describe my goal in case there is a
better way to do this. I want to set up testing.[my IP address] and
production.[my IP address] so that I can simultaneously run a testing and
production version of a small web app on the same server. I would like to
have the code for the test version in, say, ~/testing, and the code for the
production version in ~/production, and simply copy my code from ~/testing
to ~/production when I'm ready. So far Virtual Hosts seem like the most
logical way to do this, but I'm a bit stuck so I'm wondering if it's better
to explore alternatives.
