I'd like to know if the following .htaccess can be written more efficiently.

I am hosting my site on VPS server - is it better to use .htaccess or include these rewrites in httpd.config?


RewriteEngine on
Options +FollowSymLinks

RewriteRule index.php - [L]

RewriteRule ^img/(.+)$ img/$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^css/(.+)$ css/$1 [L]
RewriteRule ^js/(.+)$ js/$1 [L]

//domain.com/shoes
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.[^/]*)[/]?$ /index.php?section=$1 [L,QSA]
RewriteRule ^(.[^/]*)[/]?$ /index.php?section=$1 [L,QSA]

//domain.com/en-us/shoes
#RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-d
RewriteCond %{DOCUMENT_ROOT}/%{REQUEST_FILENAME} !-f
RewriteRule ^(.[^/]*)/(.[^/]*)[/]?$ /index.php?section=$1&language=$2 [L,QSA]
