I am still learning here in Digital Ocean. I am using Wordpress in my website. My website categories has been changed into a new url / slug and now the old ones are all 404 Error. All the 404 are already indexed in Google and I want those 404’s to be redirected to the correct and updated URLs but I dunno how to edit those. Can someone please help me what to do or what command should i use to edit it? thanks in advance

There isn’t a super-easy way to redirect users when you change your Permalink structure but this guide will walk you through a method to create 301 redirects in WordPress. It will require some manual work to make sure your URLs redirect but should solve the problem.
