To change backups direcotry dir, you have to remove the old one, and then put a
symlink to the new one : 

# ln -s /var/lib/BackupPC /path/to/you/new/dir/

Check that backuppc user is the owner of you new dir : 
# chown -R backuppc:backuppc /path/to/you/new/dir/

If you have SELinux active, you should probably put right context on the new dir :
# chcon -R -t var_lib_t /path/to/you/new/dir/

If you wish to install from upstream packages, consider reading their FAQ, and
be aware of your logs (both httpd and auditd).
