Alright, then it seems we have the first step !

I would say the problem now is that your rewrite in .htaccess *overrides 
*the rewrite in the Directory section of the VHost. See:

While testing a very similar situation some months ago (but with v.2.2), 
I've noticed that it is not enough to set "RewriteEngine Off" in 
.htaccess , as this will still override all the rules in VHost Directory 
configuration section. You need to completely remove or comment out all 
mod_rewrite instructions in your .htaccess in order to have the ones in 
the VHost Directory section to be applied.

First and simplest thing to try is to put all your rewrite instructions 
in the same container : all in .htaccess or all in VHost Directory 
section (if you chose VHost Directory section, remember to 
remove/comment out *all *instructions from mod_rewrite in the .htaccess 

Later, as from your comment in your VHost config, you want everything 
with SSL, have a look at this page too:

You could also try that solution with Redirect for the redirect to SSL, 
and then put all your config in the ssl VHost configuration.
