Couldn't find the files of director after installing it in /etc/icingaweb2/modules

i tried using some resources to create config.ini kickstart.ini myself, but i think there are some other packages not available.
Expected Behavior

when i open the front end of icingaweb, i can see the director, but i couldn’t deploy the hosts (stay loading). and that’s maybe i created the config myself.
-cat config.ini
resource = “Director DB”
cat kickstart.ini
endpoint = icinga-master
username = director
password = “*********”

Current Behavior

“icingacli module list”
director 1.11.0 enabled Director - Config tool for Icinga 2
doc 2.12.1 enabled Documentation module
incubator 0.20.0 enabled Incubator provides bleeding-edge libraries
monitoring 2.12.1 enabled Icinga monitoring module

“systemctl start icinga-director.service”
Job for icinga-director.service failed because the control process exited with error code.
See “systemctl status icinga-director.service” and “journalctl -xeu icinga-director.service” for details.

Possible Solution

the possible solution is to delete what i did myself and find the solution to install the directory directly. and find the packages in modules
