Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
Any FTP software should enable you to rename, create folders and move pages on the server if you can't or don't want to do it locally. Then add a 301 from oldname/oldpath to newname/newpath to your .htaccess file.but this does not describe the process for creating a new WP permalink (URL) or 'page'.
I do not think that Wilburforce's suggestion was meant to be used in a WordPress scenario.
WP has several auto-created ways to find the same content.Is this predictable enough that search engines will request pages under alternative URLs, in the same way that they habitually* request both /directory and /directory/ ?

Good question my friend!Do you mean that you don’t know how it was done, mechanically, because it was all done by Tech Guy? (Otherwise it sounds like one of those Generic Politician Jokes, where “I’m glad you asked that question” translates as “I have no intention of answering that question”.)
I do not recommend trying to run WordPress on a server that does not support mod_rewrite.
PHP 7.3 or greater
MySQL 5.6 or greater OR MariaDB 10.0 or greater
Nginx or Apache with mod_rewrite module
