Moving files and folders except few

http://serverfault.com – I made a terrible mistake while move sites of one server to another. We created virtualhosts in the new server using virtualmin. But while restoring files from old server to new server, I mistakenly copied all files in "/home/VIRTUALHOSTS-NAME/" instead of "/home/VIRTUALHOSTS-NAME/public_html". Now I had to move all files from the home directory of the virtualhosts to the public_html directory except few default folders like: fcgi-bin, public_html, awstats,cgi-bin etc. Can this be automated with a shell script or any command with pipe?
