It is important to note that if you use your own routes you must protect your routes to Laravel-Filemanager in order to prevent unauthorized uploads to your server. Fortunately, Laravel makes this very easy.

If, for example, you want to ensure that only logged in users have the ability to access the Laravel-Filemanager, simply wrap the routes in a group, perhaps like this:

Route::group(['middleware' => 'auth'], function () {
    Route::get('/laravel-filemanager', '\Unisharp\Laravelfilemanager\controllers\LfmController@show');
    Route::post('/laravel-filemanager/upload', '\Unisharp\Laravelfilemanager\controllers\UploadController@upload');
    // list all lfm routes here...

This approach ensures that only authenticated users have access to the Laravel-Filemanager. If you are using Middleware or some other approach to enforce security, modify as needed.

If you use the laravel-filemanager default route, make sure the auth middleware (set in config/lfm.php) is enabled and functional.
