Move .htaccess contents from .htaccess file to config directives in the Apache config file, this should improve site performance and make config maintenance more centralized too.

For instance rename your /var/www/.htaccess as /var/www/mysite.rule and include this file in apache vhost file as mentioned below.

<Directory "/var/www">
 Options Indexes Includes FollowSymLinks SymLinksifOwnerMatch ExecCGI MultiViews
 AllowOverride None
 Order deny,allow
 Allow from all
 AddHandler application/x-httpd-php .html .htm .php
 AddType application/x-httpd-php .php
 Include /var/www/mysite.rule


You can create multiple rules file based on your web directory structure and include in the apache directives.
