CUPS web interface not working

By admin | August 17, 2013

CUPS seems to be working fine - documents can be printed and everything seems to work fine, but the web interface at http://localhost:631/ doesn’t work, returning something like:

Firefox can’t establish a connection to the server at localhost:631.

Solution:

Open /etc/cups/cupsd.conf as root and ensure that the line:

Listen 631

Exists somewhere in the file. Then save it and close it. Finally, restart CUPS:

sudo /etc/init.d/cups restart

Then fire up your web browser and head to http://localhost:631/ and enjoy the CUPS web interface.
