I've managed to kill CUPS : (

I checked the box to allow remote admin and CUPS immediately crashed and produces the following:

inxi here: Dump your "inxi -Fxxxza --no-host" here and bookmark it

I'd prefer to fix it rather than reinstall if possible. I don't learn anything by doing a reinstall . . .

Welp, I had some time to start looking into this and found my cupsd.conf file overwritten with HTML. This had to have happened when I checked the box to enable remote admin for CUPS. Seems like a probable bug to me.

I moved the cupsd.conf to a .bak extension, moved cupsd.conf.O file to cupsd.conf and I can print again, but something isn't quite right still.

This is the beginning of the HTML file I found in cupsd.conf . . .
