Will this plugin work with httpd.conf instead of .htaccess?
Short answer YES! You will need to first create a blank, writable .htaccess file, install the plugin, configure the plugin and then some code will be added to the .htaccess file. Grab the code and paste it in your httpd.conf file (some tweaking is necessary). Then you can remove your .htaccess file and the plugin should work.
