Apologies for my rustiness :(

Are we still able to manage a mod_rewrite configuration per project, or did
that go away?

Subject: 404 issues

I've been notified by several parties about 404s for files that are
now longer available on the site.

This page returns 404:

It was moved here:

There are many other examples of moved content. Some are temporarily
"fixed" via adding a meta-refresh tag in the html source for the old
pages. For example the meta tag is being used to redirect to faq, the
new location for the how_to docs.

It would seem a better solution for us is to use htaccess files and
publish persistent redirects for the new location(s) of content.

Do we have a way of pushing a config to the Apache infra to facilitate
this? I think we'd need config access if we're to put up some custom
404 pages too (which would be nicer than what we have now.)

Also, is there a good way to access the log files to get a better idea
of the 404 situation?
