Last update: 2023-03-01 00:43:12 UTC


This package provides support for storing your Statamic data in a database rather than the filesystem.


Install using Composer:

composer require statamic/eloquent-driver

Publish the config file:

php artisan vendor:publish --tag="statamic-eloquent-config"

Since Statamic uses UUIDs within content files by default, we provide two solutions depending on whether you need to use existing content.

Fresh install of statamic/statamic (using incrementing ids)

If you're starting from scratch, we can use traditional incrementing integers for IDs.

  • Delete content/collections/pages/
  • Change the structure tree in content/collections/pages.yaml to {}.
  • Run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statamic\Eloquent\ServiceProvider" --tag=migrations.
  • Run php artisan vendor:publish --tag="statamic-eloquent-entries-table".
  • Run php artisan migrate.

Starting from an existing site (using UUIDs)

If you're planning to use existing content, we can use the existing UUIDs. This will prevent you from needing to update any data or relationships.

  • In the config/statamic/eloquent-driver.php file, change entries.model to \Statamic\Eloquent\Entries\UuidEntryModel::class.
  • Run php artisan vendor:publish --provider="Statamic\Eloquent\ServiceProvider" --tag=migrations.
  • Run php artisan vendor:publish --tag="statamic-eloquent-entries-table-with-string-ids".
  • Run php artisan migrate.


The configuration file (statamic.eloquent-driver) allows you to choose which repositories you want to be driven by eloquent. By default, all are selected, but if you want to opt out simply change driver from eloquent to file for that repository.

You may also specify your own models for each repository, should you wish to use something different from the one provided.

Importing existing file based content

We have provided imports from file based content for each repository, which can be run as follows:

  • Assets: php please eloquent:import-assets
  • Blueprints and Fieldsets: php please eloquent:import-blueprints
  • Collections: php please eloquent:import-collections
  • Entries: php please eloquent:import-entries
  • Forms: php please eloquent:import-forms
  • Globals: php please eloquent:import-globals
  • Navs: php please eloquent:import-navs
  • Revisions: php please eloquent:import-revisions
  • Taxonomies: php please eloquent:import-taxonomies

Storing Users in a Database

Statamic has a built-in users eloquent driver if you'd like to cross that bridge too.

Mixed driver entries and collections

This driver does not make it possible to have some collections/entries file driven and some eloquent driven. If that is your requirement you may want to look into using Runway.
