CUPS – Web Interface disabled

If you’ve been trying to access the CUPS web interface on Mac OS X 10.8 then you may have run into this error message

“The web interface is currently disabled. Run “cupsctl WebInterface=yes” to enable it”

(to access CUPS, Open Safari & type http://localhost:631 in the address bar)

To rectify this, you basically do as it asks

Open Terminal & type the following

cupsctl webinterface=yes

Press Enter and then retry the web interface in Safari and you should now have access to CUPS again
