Default Nothing Output from Munin

I recently installed munin to see how it runs on Ubuntu. I configured it to only monitor the machine it is running on (localhost.localdomain). It appears that both munin and munin-node are running properly, except no reports are showing up on munin's page. There is a page for localhost.localdomain but it contains no reports. Munin has been running for over a day now, and the generated by Munin message at the bottom suggests that it is updating at regular intervals.

Here is some relevant configuration information

dbdir   /var/lib/munin
htmldir /var/www/munin
logdir  /var/log/munin
rundir  /var/run/munin
tmpldir /etc/munin/templates
graph_strategy cgi
    use_node_name yes
log_level 4
log_file /var/log/munin/munin-node.log
pid_file /var/run/munin/
background 1
setseid 1
user root
group root
setsid yes
ignore_file ~$
ignore_file \.bak$
ignore_file %$
ignore_file \.dpkg-(tmp|new|old|dist)$
ignore_file \.rpm(save|new)$
ignore_file \.pod$
allow ^127\.0\.0\.1$
port 4949
Munin virtual host configuration on Apache 2
EDIT: Fixed mismatch in cgi-bin location; still no success
<VirtualHost *:80>
        ServerAdmin webmaster@localhost
        ServerName munin

        DocumentRoot /var/www/munin
        <Directory />
                Options FollowSymLinks
                AllowOverride None
        <Directory /var/www/>
                Options Indexes FollowSymLinks MultiViews
                AllowOverride None
                Order allow,deny
                allow from all

        ScriptAlias /cgi-bin/ /var/www/munin/cgi-bin/
        <Directory "/var/www/munin/cgi-bin">
                AllowOverride None
                Options +ExecCGI -MultiViews +SymLinksIfOwnerMatch
                Order allow,deny
                Allow from all

        ErrorLog /var/log/apache2/error.log

        # Possible values include: debug, info, notice, warn, error, crit,
        # alert, emerg.
        LogLevel notice

        CustomLog /var/log/apache2/access.log combined

        ServerSignature On
As you can see, I'm attempting to configure Munin to use just-in-time reporting via CGI by following these instructions without bothering with fast CGI.

Any suggestions as to why Munin might appear to be doing its job but also appear to be configured to provide 0 reports?
