changing the directory on motion should not cause a change on the web server. Was it working before you change the directory?

If not, then look for webcam_localhost and control_localhost config option.
If yes, then I suspect permission problem. I had to change the permission to 666 to enable read/write by everyone.

If you run it as service, then the user name isn't "pi". username is "motion", group "motion". At least, that's how it's set up on my device.
