You don't need if you are using mod_proxy_ajp. is only for using mod_jk (an alternative to
mod_proxy_ajp in httpd 2.2, and the only viable game in town for AJP in
pre-2.2 versions of Apache httpd).

Just get rid of the file.

Wow. What version of Tomcat are you attempting to use? This
configuration looks seriously old. If you are just starting out, try
using Tomcat 6.

Really? Making an HTTP request on port 8009 isn't going to work: that
port is serving AJP13 requests. What do you mean it "is working fine"
when you "test to browse some JSP" files?

So, you want to use port 80? That's what Apache httpd should be doing
for you: proxying port 80 traffic through AJP (port 8009) to Tomcat.

What happens when you start everything up and actually try it? If it
works as expected, I'd say that you have done at least most of it correctly.
