Todo: Webserver first !!


Install the CUPS package

apk add cups

Make it autostart

Next time you reboot your Alpine Linux box, you would probably want cupsd to automatically start.

rc-update add cupsd

You can check your boot services:


/etc/init.d/cupsd start

lppasswd -a root

Configuring the cups server

Edit /etc/cups/cupsd.conf.

Replace Listen localhost:631 with Listen *:631

Allow hosts in your subnet to connect by adding Allow localhost and Allow from subnet/mask in <Location /> section:

# Restrict access to the server...
<Location />
  Order allow,deny
  Allow localhost 
  Allow from

/etc/init.d/cupsd restart
