How can I remove a plugin or change a directory's name?

Hello, I am facing the following problem. I installed wordpress through one click installation. Then I installed shield security plugin. I enabled google recaptcha through that plugin. But Keys were not properly set. I am locked out of site. I couldnot login into my wp admin base.

I found this solution.

So I can either change folder name or create additional folder in that directory. How do I do that using ssh ?
