htaccess: Stop Page Not Found Errors when site changes

in PHP added by designertuts, on 13/12/2007 beginner tutorials htaccess

Its a problem I come across often. Someone does a complete site redesign and all the filenames and paths have changed. They are really pleased with their new site. But what they don't realise is their users aren't so happy. Why? Well perhaps they have bookmarked one of your old pages. Or perhaps they type a search phrase into a search engine and it returns a link to your old pages. In both cases they will get "Page not found".
