I have recently changed the paths around on my web server and want to make the old paths automatically point to the new paths.

For example:

Old path: http://my.website.com/coolstuff/uploads
New path: http://my.website.com/uploads/coolstuff

I'm using Apache2, and want to avoid having to keep the old folders around since I moved them in the first place to mak everything a bit tidier. Any idead how I can achieve what I want easily?

In your .htaccess file in the root of you site, you can add the following lines:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^/?coolstuff/uploads(.*)$ /uploads/coolstuff$1 [R=301]

You could alternatively add them to your httpd.conf file if you wanted.
