comment EC2, Ubuntu, RVM, Rails, Passenger, Apache — requests to my domain just time out
Thanks! This is great advice. Next time, I will make sure I can serve static content from my instance before bringing Ruby into it. I'd upvote your answer, but I don't have enough points :) I'm posting my own solution for any future Googlers out there...

@sss, it is set to *:80. I used to have that posted above, but as Jenny D pointed out, if my logs are empty, then the request is never getting to apache, so the problem must be elsewhere...didn't want the question to get so long people wouldn't read it :)

Thanks so much Jenny and ceejayoz for helping me narrow this down. I now realize the problem clearly has to do with security, although I still haven't managed to solve it. I've edited my question with more relevant info.

the error log noted my stops and restarts; that is all. access.log and other_vhosts_access.log are empty.
