NAME

cups-files.conf - file and directory configuration file for cups  

DESCRIPTION

The cups-files.conf file configures the files and directories used by 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. Configuration directives typically consist of a name and zero or more values separated by whitespace. The configuration directive name and values are case-insensitive. Comment lines start with the # character.  

DIRECTIVES

The following directives are understood by cupsd(8):
AccessLog
AccessLog filename
AccessLog syslog
Defines the access log filename. Specifying a blank filename disables access log generation. The value "syslog" causes log entries to be sent to the system log daemon. The server name may be included in filenames using the string "%s", for example:

    AccessLog /var/log/cups/%s-access_log

The default is "/var/log/cups/access_log".
ConfigFilePerm mode
Specifies the permissions for all configuration files that the scheduler writes. The default is "0644" on OS X and "0640" on all other operating systems.

Note: The permissions for the printers.conf file are currently masked to only allow access from the scheduler user (typically root). This is done because printer device URIs sometimes contain sensitive authentication information that should not be generally known on the system. There is no way to disable this security feature.

DataDir path
Specifies the directory where data files can be found. The default is usually "/usr/share/cups".
DocumentRoot directory
Specifies the root directory for the CUPS web interface content. The default is usually "/usr/share/doc/cups".
ErrorLog
ErrorLog filename
ErrorLog syslog
Defines the error log filename. Specifying a blank filename disables error log generation. The value "syslog" causes log entries to be sent to the system log daemon. The server name may be included in filenames using the string "%s", for example:

    ErrorLog /var/log/cups/%s-error_log

The default is "/var/log/cups/error_log".
FatalErrors none
FatalErrors all -kind [ ... -kind ]
FatalErrors kind [ ... kind ]
Specifies which errors are fatal, causing the scheduler to exit. The default is "config". The kind strings are:
none
No errors are fatal.
all
All of the errors below are fatal.
browse
Browsing initialization errors are fatal, for example failed connections to the DNS-SD daemon.
config
Configuration file syntax errors are fatal.
listen
Listen or Port errors are fatal, except for IPv6 failures on the loopback or "any" addresses.
log
Log file creation or write errors are fatal.
permissions
Bad startup file permissions are fatal, for example shared TLS certificate and key files with world-read permissions.
FileDevice Yes
FileDevice No
Specifies whether the file pseudo-device can be used for new printer queues. The URI "file:///dev/null" is always allowed.
Group group-name-or-number
Specifies the group name or ID that will be used when executing external programs. The default group is operating system specific but is usually "lp" or "nobody".
LogFilePerm mode
Specifies the permissions of all log files that the scheduler writes. The default is "0644".
PageLog [ filename ]
PageLog syslog
Defines the page log filename. The value "syslog" causes log entries to be sent to the system log daemon. Specifying a blank filename disables page log generation. The server name may be included in filenames using the string "%s", for example:

    PageLog /var/log/cups/%s-page_log

The default is "/var/log/cups/page_log".
RemoteRoot username
Specifies the username that is associated with unauthenticated accesses by clients claiming to be the root user. The default is "remroot".
RequestRoot directory
Specifies the directory that contains print jobs and other HTTP request data. The default is "/var/spool/cups".
Sandboxing off
Sandboxing relaxed
Sandboxing strict
Specifies the level of security sandboxing that is applied to print filters, backends, and other child processes of the scheduler. The default is "strict". This directive is currently only used/supported on OS X.
ServerBin directory
Specifies the directory containing the backends, CGI programs, filters, helper programs, notifiers, and port monitors. The default is "/usr/lib/cups" or "/usr/libexec/cups" depending on the platform.
ServerKeychain path
Specifies the location of TLS certificates and private keys. The default is "/Library/Keychains/System.keychain" on OS X and "/etc/cups/ssl" on all other operating systems. OS X uses its keychain database to store certificates and keys while other platforms use separate files in the specified directory, *.crt for PEM-encoded certificates and *.key for PEM-encoded private keys.
ServerRoot directory
Specifies the directory containing the server configuration files. The default is "/etc/cups".
SyncOnClose Yes
SyncOnClose No
Specifies whether the scheduler calls fsync(2) after writing configuration or state files. The default is "No".
SystemGroup group-name [ ... group-name ]
Specifies the group(s) to use for @SYSTEM group authentication. The default contains "admin", "lpadmin", "root", "sys", and/or "system".
TempDir directory
Specifies the directory where temporary files are stored. The default is "/var/spool/cups/tmp".
User username
Specifies the user name or ID that is used when running external programs. The default is "lp".
