Installation config - where is this stored?


We have very recently completed a successful install of TestRail on VM.
Accessed the URL & logged in to the TestRail dashboard - no issues.

However, on my most recent attempt to access the same TestRail URL, I was redirected to the (already completed) Installation Wizard.
So something occurred to wipe the previously set configuration settings. Any ideas what type of event could cause this - are the installation settings held in the db or in a config file?
Could we have missed a setting to explicitly persist the installation config or a directory we needed to provide with write permissions, for example?
Just trying to pinpoint the root of the issue so we can resolve & take steps to avoid re-occurrence in the future.
