I made the change to setup I described before. Here's a pull request:
https://github.com/owncloud/core/pull/4982 The code was already reviewed
and this pull request need to be tested. Can someone test it, please?

> 2) The core/templates/installation.php generates controls based on the
> installation-config.php file, if there's no installation-config.php then
> current "Finish Setup" page will be generated.
