Since Laravel v11 remove Kernel.php, the middleware setup point to bootstrap/app.php

return Application::configure(basePath: dirname(__DIR__))
    ->withMiddleware(function (Middleware $middleware) {

        // [SETUP HERE] Adminer Middleware group
        $middleware->group('adminer', [

    ->withExceptions(function (Exceptions $exceptions) {

Laravel 5.2 and above

Modify config/adminer.php : 'middleware' => 'adminer',

Modify app/Http/Kernel.php file with adminer in $middlewareGroups

protected $middlewareGroups = [
    'adminer' => [
        // TODO: you may create customized middleware to fit your needs
        // example uses Laravel default authentication (default protection)

Enable Plugins

Drop your plugin files in resources/adminer/plugins

Modify config/adminer.php : 'plugins' => [] by adding the name of the plugin class and any argument required

return [
    'plugins' => [
        'PluginClassNameWithArgument' => 'argument_value',
        'PluginClassNameWithMultipleArguments' => ['arg1', 'arg2', ...],

Due to function name conflicts of Laravel 5 and Adminer, adminer.php file functions cookie(), redirect() and view() are prefixed with adm_ prefix.
