RedHat 9 (Linux i386) - man page for cupsd.conf (redhat section 5)

cupsd.conf(5)			      Easy Software Products			    cupsd.conf(5)

NAME
       cupsd.conf - server configuration file for cups

DESCRIPTION
       The  cupsd.conf	file  configures the CUPS scheduler, cupsd(8).	It is normally located in
       the /etc/cups directory.

       Each line in the file can be a configuration directive, a blank line, or a  comment.  Com-
       ment lines start with the # character. The configuration directives are intentionally sim-
       ilar to those used by the popular Apache web server software and are described below.
