Previously my bash script was pointing to /path1 but I moved it to under /path2, now if I do "type myscript" it's still pointing to /path1, how do I solve this?

I believe it's this:

hash -r

I closed my bash session and started a new one and that solved the problem too. I thought I tried that before, but I could be wrong. – grokus Aug 9 '10 at 14:25
@grokus It's nice not to have to start a new shell - especially if you're logged in over ssh - but a new shell should do it. – Telemachus Aug 9 '10 at 14:27
@Telemachus, thanks. Next time I run into this, I will try "hash -r". – grokus Aug 9 '10 at 14:34
@Telemachus, can you vote my question up? I have more than 100 reputations on all other SE sites but not this one. It sucks to have 1 point, I can't even vote up anything. :( – grokus Aug 9 '10 at 14:36
@grokus I'll vote it up, but you must promise to put the question back. Otherwise, this thread is getting awfully silly. (I currently have an answer in search of a question.) Also, can't you accept answers no matter what your point level is? (That gets you points as well.) – Telemachus Aug 9 '10 at 14:38
