Is it possible to setup VirtualHost, but include it's rewrites from another file? Using .htaccess is not allowed. Something like this, I suppose...

SetEnv APP_ENV dev
Include /path/to/vhostrewrite.conf

Thank you!

The short answer is yes. I'd recommend putting your includes in an IfModule tag as well, e.g:

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
    Include conf/mod_rewrite_rules.conf

Configuration changes to the rewrite rules will require a reload of the entire configuration as opposed to .htaccess.
