Read Apache HTTPD docs on how it determines its server name. I guess
it should have been the ServerName directive,

If I remember correctly, mod_jk passes that information to Tomcat, but if that
does not work, it can be overwritten in <Connector> element by setting
proxyName and proxyPort attributes,
