    I made a stupid mistake:
    In the settings of a single install, I changed blog URL to root directory, when it is really installed in domain/blog/

    I can't log in to the admin panel. So how do I fix the mistake?

    Update:
    The site sort of comes up, but unthemed, and the login doesn't work, but results in an error message:

    Firefox has detected that the server is redirecting the request for this address in a way that will never complete.

    I tried editing the functions.php file according to directions in http://codex.wordpress.org/Changing_The_Site_URL
    That resulted in an error message about the functions.php file.

    I tried editing the index.php file according to http://wordpress.org/support/topic/cant-login-to-admin-panel-after-changing-blog-address?replies=8
    That resulted in the same error as the first one.

    However, following the excellent instructions at http://educhalk.org/blog/2008/12/changed-wordpress-blog-address-in-settings-locked-out-how-to-fix/ worked. (I edited database through phpMayAdmin
