mac CLI installed, permissions issue

i installed the mac CLI but when prompted for my password during the install process i entered the wrong password 3 times. The installer said it completed the installation but certain commands don't work such as the `nextdns start`, ` nextdns run`, and `nextdns uninstall`. when i run them with sudo, it says the app is not installed or i don't have certain files in my system.

% nextdns start   

Error: permission denied

% nextdns run
