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.

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.
