Ubuntu broke cups. The web interface no longer works.

That's funny.  I just connected an old Okidata ML321 to Ubuntu 7.10 using the CUPS web interface today.  The only problems I encountered were needing to ensure the printer was in the IBM-emulation mode and re-connecting the cable afterwards.  We could not get the darned thing to print squat until we disconnected and re-connected the cable.

And you can manage CUPS printers from the CLI:
