To install Administrator as a Composer package to be used with Laravel 5.8, simply run:

composer require "exodusanto/administrator: 5.8.*"

To install Administrator as a Composer package to be used with Laravel 5.7, simply run:

composer require "exodusanto/administrator: 5.7.*"

Once it's installed, you can register the service provider in config/app.php in the providers array:

'providers' => [

Then publish Administrator's assets with php artisan vendor:publish. This will add the file config/administrator.php. This config file is the primary way you interact with Administrator. This command will also publish all of the assets, views, and translation files.

Laravel 4

If you want to use Administrator with Laravel 4, you need to resolve to Administrator 4:

"exodusanto/administrator": "4.*"

Then publish the config file with php artisan config:publish frozennode/administrator. This will add the file app/config/packages/frozennode/administrator/administrator.php.

Then finally you need to publish the package's assets with the php artisan asset:publish frozennode/administrator command.

Laravel 3

Since Administrator has switched over to Composer, you can no longer use php artisan bundle:install administrator or php artisan bundle:upgrade administrator. If you want to use Administrator with Laravel 3, you must switch to the 3.3.2 branch, download it, and add it in the /bundles/administrator directory and add this to your bundles.php file:

'administrator' => array(
    'handles' => 'admin', //this determines what URI this bundle will use
    'auto' => true,
