I'm not an expert of either apache or fedora. But one thing I can 
recommend is to recover the original working status first, then move the 
entire wiki directory to wherever you want it to be, and then set up a 
symbolic link (ln -s) at the original place toward the new place. So 
that from apache's view nothing has changed and you don't have to touch 
apache conf file. I think the error is just saying it can't find the page.
