    Change the urls back. See Changing_The_Site_URL for details of how to do this.

    What you’ll need to do is access the database via the phpMyadmin and change the home url and site url to what they were before.

    Then follow these instructions to give the site a different directory – http://codex.wordpress.org/Giving_WordPress_Its_Own_Directory

    I can’t even log in to the Dashboard, so I can’t change them.

    Oh, and I am working on an online version of WordPress. I did not need to download anything to work on the blog. Thought I’d specify.

    You won’t be able to access the dashboard until you change the urls.
    You’ll need to change these in the wp_options table.
    Your hosting provider should have a link to the phpmyadmin.

    Please re-read the page linked to above. None of the solutions require you to login to your WordPress dashboard.

    Okay, I will read carefully. I am completely new to WordPress, sorry.

    Hurray! I didn’t know I had to log in to the host’s control panel to access myPhpAdmin, so I tried that and followed the directions in esmi’s link and it worked! Whew. Many thanks!
