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..

The following rule does what I need:
RewriteRule 	^page/(.*)  /info/$1 [R=301,L]
