I have a mediawiki named 'mayawiki' at, funnily enough
The 'Maya' part of the name is the 3d software I mainly used in my day
job. I started dabbling in another 3d app called Houdini, but that
dabbling has become a full-time switch, making the wiki name a bit
I'd like to change it so that the new name is
(cg = computer graphics, to protect myself against any future flights
I've done some reading, seems easy enough to move the folder, update
the wiki internal name. What I haven't been able to find is tips on
minimising site disruption. Ideally old links would work, but would
redirect them to the new url with a warning to update their bookmarks,
and after x weeks turn off the old site.
Any guides on that process, or MW plugins that could help? Or is this
venturing into scary waters of apache rewrite rules?
