A simple interface to preview, download and delete Laravel log files.


# install the package with composer
composer require backpack/logmanager

# [optional] Add a menu item for it
# For Backpack v6
php artisan backpack:add-menu-content "<x-backpack::menu-item title='Logs' icon='la la-terminal' :link=\"backpack_url('log')\" />"
# For Backpack v5 or v4
php artisan backpack:add-sidebar-content "<li class='nav-item'><a class='nav-link' href='{{ backpack_url('log') }}'><i class='nav-icon la la-terminal'></i> Logs</a></li>"

For a better user experience, make sure Laravel is configured to create a new log file for each day. That way, you can browse log entries by day too. You can do that in your config/logging.php file.

From a default Laravel configuration, make sure the daily channel is inside the stack channel, which is used by default:

    'channels' => [
        'stack' => [
            'driver'   => 'stack',
            'channels' => ['daily'],
        'single' => [
            'driver' => 'single',
            'path'   => storage_path('logs/laravel.log'),
            'level'  => 'debug',
        'daily' => [
            'driver' => 'daily',
            'path'   => storage_path('logs/laravel.log'),
            'level'  => 'debug',
            'days'   => 7,

You can change the number of days, or path, level, etc inside this the daily channel.


Add a menu element for it or just try at your-project-domain/admin/log

Overwriting Functionality

If you need to modify how this works in a project:

  • create a routes/backpack/logmanager.php file; the package will see that, and load your routes file, instead of the one in the package;
  • create controllers/models that extend the ones in the package, and use those in your new routes file;
  • modify anything you'd like in the new controllers/models;


If you discover any security related issues, please email instead of using the issue tracker.
