Thanks for providing all the information needed to help you.
Not everyone does, and it's a p. in the a.

But your configuration is a bit strange.
Actually, it cannot work the way it is described, because you have both 
Apache httpd AND Apache Tomcat (2 different processes) trying to 
"listen" on the same port (8080).  Something is wrong, and either one or 
the other should have trouble starting up (the first one to start will, 
the second one cannot).

The you say that you use the URL

That would assume that something is listening on port 80.
But according to your configuration below, nothing is.
Apache httpd is listening on port 8080.  That's the
Listen 8080
directive in httpd.conf (or apache2.conf)
Tomcat is also listening on port 8080, according to the line
<Connector port="8080" maxHttpHeaderSize="8192" ...
in Tomcat's "server.xml" file.

The third thing that is a bit strange, is that you have both Apache 
httpd and Tomcat set up, but actually your configuration is such that 
Apache httpd forwards everything to Tomcat.  Like
ProxyPass /

So then, why even bother with Apache httpd ?
What happens if you just turn off the Apache httpd service, and try
the URL :
