I started to reply with the standard "RTFM" but when I checked, I saw 
that the manual doesn't really make this clear, so:

All of the Apache directives go in httpd.conf

Many of them can also go in .htaccess (not .httpaccess) when they apply 
to a single directory (the directory where you place the .htaccess file).

I believe the rewrite rules best go in the main httpd.conf file.

Good luck.
