Setting the CUPS admin password

2006-05-12 1 min read Howto marco

You can get to the CUPS admin page by connecting to http://localhost:631. But if you want to do anything useful, you have to present your administrator password. Who’s the administrator? root of course.What’s the password? Well, you have to set it to whatever you want.

To do so, go to a root shell and type:

lppasswd -a root

Enter a password, and that’s what you use in the CUPS screens.
