mod_jk doesn't read a file called mod_jk.conf, so you've got to be
including it in your httpd.conf, somewhere. Can you check your
configuration to find out where it's being loaded?

It's possible that your JkMount directives are being processed at the
"top" level of the configuration and then are not being made visible in
your VirtualHost.

I recommend a few changes to your configuration:

Leave all of the above in mod_jk.conf

Move these two lines into your httpd.conf file inside the VirtualHost
that responds to http://localhost/ requests.

As the logs state, this setting is deprecated. Check the mod_jk
documentation for its replacement. You can find that documentation here:

Just search for "cachesize". Read that section carefully: you might want
to eliminate that option entirely from your configuration.
