    You can find the wp_options table in the database to change the blog name directly or just try to visit domain-name/wp-admin and go to settings and then change the blog name.

    Thanks and Regards,

    Take a look at Giving WordPress Its Own Directory WordPress Codex

    Of course, you don't want the root, but the /blog subdirectory, but I think it should work anyway.

    You will find blog_url also in settings or wp_options table.

    My mistake.

    You will find site_url in the wp_options table. Change it and it will change the blog url.
