/etc/cups/cupsd.conf will be used.

-f Run cupsd in the foreground; the default is to run in the
background as a "daemon".
-F Run cupsd in the foreground but detach the process from the
controlling terminal and current directory. This is useful for
running cupsd from init(8).
-h Shows the program usage.

cupsd -f -c test.conf
