Just this past week, I upgraded a wiki and moved the rewrite rules to
the <VirtualHost> block.  They worked.  Here they are:

  <VirtualHost *:80>
  <Location /RKB>
  RewriteEngine on
  RewriteCond %{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
  RewriteRule ^/?(.*)$ /RKB/index.php [L,QSA]

Maybe there is something else that caused a problem for you?  Maybe it
was an Apache version?

  Server version: Apache/2.2.22 (Ubuntu)
  Server built:   Nov  8 2012 21:37:45

Is there some problem I may be running into here?
