    My wordpress blog is set up using a cable modem (who's ip address changes on a semi-regular basis). I was wondering what the mysql commands are to change the ipaddress for my blog inside of mysql.

    So you're putting IP address into one or both of the URI fields at Options -> General?

    This tutorial walks through how to change those URI values using phpMyAdmin.

    You may want to consider using a dyndns type service if you're going to continue hosting from home.

    Thanks for the tip. However, I was wondering if there is a way to do this from the command line mysql prompt?

    Sure. I won't write the how-to for it ;-) but it can be done. As you look at the link I gave you, make note of the tables and columns in question. Those are what your command-line SQL will use.
