I just installed cups. When the webinterface asked me for username and password, I gave my regular user and not the root password. Now I can't log in (forbidden). I tried to clear the browsing data without success. What should I do?
As chirlu commented, restarting the browser solved this.
Alternatively, you can just delete the session cookie for cups.
Here's how to do this in Mozilla Firefox:
(I'm using Firefox in German, so your menu item names might differ)
- Open Menu → Settings (or type
about:preferencesinto the address bar)
In English this may be "Tools" → "Options".
- Select tab "Privacy"
- Click "[delete] individual cookies"
In English this may be "Show Cookies..."
- Search for "localhost" (or whatever the URL is you're running the
CUPS interface on), find the cookie called
org.cups.sidor similar, and delete it.
- Reload the CUPS interface webpage, you should now be logged out.
