Right; as you suggested earlier, this seems to be a product of moving
your mod_rewrite rules from .htaccess files to vhost configuration files.

I don't know if this will work in that context, but given that your
filesystem structure uses the host name, perhaps you could use
%{HTTP_HOST} in place of "", e.g.:

RewriteRule ^/?wiki/view/(.+)$
/srv/website/%{$HTTP_HOST}/wiki/index.php?page=$1 [L]
