That's right, because when you edit the configuration files to your
taste, you don't _need_ to run the installer. You are manually doing
what the installer does. Those commands above assumed since you had
installed other software you knew enough to edit the config files
yourself for your needs. Note I did not say to run the installer in
the instructions I provided.

Well, whatever voodoo you had going on moved somewhere else.
The only thing I can think of is that the permissions on the
directories or files that installer needs to access changed to allow
the installer to function. Your "fix" is specific to your setup, so
it is likely not applicable to others.
Make sure your logs directory is writable by the web server process
