Changed WP address, now I can't access site (3 posts)

    Oh boy, did I mess up. I changed the name of my blog and wanted to change the site address to the new name. I put in the new name in the WP address in general settings (not the site URL) and clicked save and now I can't access my blog at all. It tries to log me into WordPress under the new site name but when I put in my name and password it gives me a 404.

    My blog is connected to my business page and I wanted to keep it that way, but I wanted to change the URL of the blog to the new name. I'm still a novice at wordpress and I'm completely lost. Please help!

    If needed, here's the blog: http://www.mereware.com/public_html/Blog.html

    I tried to do everything on that site and nothing is working. Now I can't even see my blog, it says 'error establishing a database connection' when I try to go to the blog or log in to it. The only way I can still see my feed is through feedburner. The only thing I can figure is that I have the original WP address wrong. I tried all four solutions in the above link using the given:

    'update_option('siteurl','http://example.com/blog');
    update_option('home','http://example.com/blog'

    None of them worked. I can't remember exactly what the original address was but I think it was http://mereware.com/wordpress, and I tried using that address in all four solutions as well and nothing is working.
