Backpack admin interface for files and folder, using barryvdh/laravel-elfinder. This package literally just:

  • creates a public/uploads folder;
  • installs barryvdh/laravel-elfinder;
  • publishes an elFinder config and view, for elFinder to play nice with Backpack;
  • adds a menu item to the sidebar;


From your command line, require the package (this will also require barryvdh/laravel-elfinder):

composer require backpack/filemanager

Then run the install process:

php artisan backpack:filemanager:install

That's it. Hit refresh in your admin panel, and you'll find a new sidebar item pointing to the File Manager.


You can use elFinder in Backpack:


To upgrade from v2 to v3 of this package:

# remove the published blade views
rm -rf resources/views/vendor/elfinder

# publish the new blade views
php artisan backpack:filemanager:install
