How to change the wordpress blog name?

Hi all,
I have installed WordPress blog, to my site in a blog directory.
To go to blog, by typing the URL as;

IANA — Example domains

Now i want to change the URL as;

IANA — Example domains

I tried, by renaming the directory of wordpress, but all links in the site are not changed…

How to change the url, within all the blog site?

Thanking you…

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,

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.

After changing the siteurl value, it is not updating the site links…
All links are not changed in the site blog…
