You can change the admin url in:

  1. As @brentwpeterson wrote in app/etc/local.xml: <admin> <routers> <adminhtml> <args> <frontName><![CDATA[admin]]></frontName> </args> </adminhtml> </routers> </admin>

  2. In the admin panel -> System -> Configuration -> ADVANCED -> Admin -> Admin Base URL -> Use Custom Admin URL / Use Custom Admin Path. But if you changed it there and can't login in the admin panel you should revert it in the database. The SQL queries are:

UPDATE core_config_data SET value = 0 WHERE path = 'admin/url/use_custom'; UPDATE core_config_data SET value = 0 WHERE path = 'admin/url/use_custom_path';
