It depends -- you can rename the uploads sub-directory, or move the files to a
new directory, if you log into the server via SSH or FTP. On the server, you
have the pmwiki directory, then inside the "uploads" directory, then more
directories and files.
If you have per-page attachments (as explained in the UploadsAdmin page), it
is easy. To move the files to a different page in the same wikigroup, just
rename the directory (folder) to the new name :
If for some reason you cannot rename or move the directory, it may be possible
to just move the files. Create the new directory, select all files in the old
one, select Edit-Cut (or press Ctrl+X), go to the new directory and select
Edit-Paste (or Ctrl+V). IIRC this works with the standard windows explorer,
and it does work with Konqueror/Krusader.
If you have per-group attachments, there is no way of knowing which files
were attached to which page: all are considered attached to any page of that
group. So, in a different page of the same group, all your Attach:,
(:attachlist:) or other markups related to uploads should work the same way.
Lastly, you can always link to uploads in different groups or pages:
Attach:Page/image.jpg another page in the same group
Attach:Group.Page/image.jpg page in another group
Attach:Group./image.jpg another group with per-group uploads,
note the dot after Group.
