View Full Version : Backup printer

23rd November 2006, 08:57 AM
On my FC5 server I installed some printers.
Now I'm setting op a FC6 server and I have to add the printers.
On FC5 I used to work with system-config-printers-tui
To export or import my printer information.
FC6 however doesn't support system-config-printers-tui anymore.
On the internet I found that backing up you printers can easily be done by simple copying the /etc/cups folder.
So I copied the /etc/cups from the FC5 to FC6 bit when I open http://localhost:631/printers there are none

What did I do wrong and are the other (beter) ways to backup my printers

Indeed you only have to copy the CUPS folder but then you have to restart the cups service
(shame shame shame)
