XF 1.2 Botched FTP upload. Trying to connect to existing DB

So I screwed up when I was trying to use Transmit for my FTP client. I didn't have Transmit "merge" the upgrade package and it instead "replaced" directories. I'm re-uploading the full 1.2 XF install package but how can I bypass the setup stages and connect to the existing and un-changed database?

OK, that's what I thought. I'll just go in and manually edit the config file so no installation processes are initiated

config file has been updated.
Index still says "The board is currently being upgraded. Please check back later."
/install/ Wants to begin installation and wipe the DB.

Now what?

Replaced install-lock file in internal_data
Still "The board is currently being upgraded. Please check back later."

How can I run the upgrade aside from going to /install/?
When i go to /install/ it says "You have already completed installation. If you wish to reinstall, please delete the file internal_data/install-lock.php."
I'm stuck in a loop.

You were right! I reuploaded the add-on files, disabled and re-enabled them and we're back up and running. What a headache for a couple hours
