You can create a symbolic links to get the job done.

cd your-web-server-root-dir
mv yyy mybackup
ln -s /your-web-server-root-dir/zzz /your-web-server-root-dir/yyy

    Note: your old yyy dir becomes mybackup, when people use http://www.xxx.com/yyy/, it automatically point to http://www.xxx.com/zzz/

if you don't have a yyy dir, but you have zzz. do the followings:

1. login as root, or su as root

2. cd your-web-server-root-dir
   ln -s /your-web-server-root-dir/zzz /your-web-server-root-dir/yyy

   this create a a symbolic link for you.

   when some one try to access yyy, it goes to zzz

   I hope this can help.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

your webserver has the ability to do this, usually.
In apache this is called Alias and/or ScriptAlias, it also has sevaral other redirect methods.

In apache, you can change the httpd.conf file to make a alias to do the job.

you can add someting like:

Alias /yyy/ "/full-path-to-zzz/"

or just do what I told you before.
