I want to rename the base path of a website, from "page" to "info". All subfolders should be included, seven levels deep. Is it possible to do this in one line?

/page => /info
/page/abc => /info/abc
/page/def/xyz => /info/def/xyz
etc

Yes you can rename the physical path, then you must also update your apache configuration file, and then restart the service to let them see the changes..
