    Under settings on the dashboard, I was having a blonde moment and changed the wp address and blog address to etain.binya.org... when it should be http://www.binya.org/etain. Now I can't log in because etain.binya.org is just a redirect and not a subdirectory, so it keeps re-directing onto itself and I get 404's. How can I fix this mess I made?!

    The most direct step would probably be to change it in the database using phpMyadmin. However, it is important to read the documentation in full before trying it (e.g. backup!)

    do you have access to your database via something like phpMyAdmin? You should be able to log in and change your blog settings.......it would be in the table wp_options and it's the site url......
