It can be changed in project properties dialog. Select "Web Project Settings" Category and you'll see 'Context Root' field to define it.

Here is the general approach to fix this in your case.
1. Change filter preferences to see hidden files which name started from .
2. Do file search trough all files for 'MYPROJECTOLD'  and replace to my "MYPROJECTNEW"
3. Close and open project again

Delete hidden CVS meta data after you copied project and share project again. Another approach is exporting it before renaming to get just sources without CVS metadata.
