Installing Lara-S-CMS

Lara-S-CMS utilizes Composer to manage its dependencies. So, before using Lara-S-CMS, make sure you have Composer installed on your machine.

Composer Create-Project

You may also install Lara-S-CMS by issuing the Composer create-project command in your terminal:

After creating the project move to the project root folder eg: cd website and run the command to set up database and configuration files (if key is not generated while installing).

The next thing you should do after installing Lara-S-CMS is set your application key to a random string. If you installed Lara-S-CMS via Composer or the Lara-S-CMS installer, this key has already been set for you by the key:generate command. Typically, this string should be 32 characters long. The key can be set in the .env environment file. If you have not renamed the .env.example file to .env, you should do that now.

Basic Configurations

Directory Permissions

After installing Lara-S-CMS, you may need to configure some permissions. Directories within the storage and the bootstrap/cache directories should be writable by your web server. If you are using the Homestead virtual machine, these permissions should already be set.

And with additionally configure the permission for directory public/uploads/. So upload photos feature in Product Module can work well.

chmod o+w -R public/uploads/

*If after setup all configs, but still display error "500 Internal Server Error"

Comment first line in .htaccess for fix this issue

#Header always set Content-Security-Policy: upgrade-insecure-requests

<IfModule mod_rewrite.c>
   RewriteEngine On 
   RewriteRule ^(.*)$ public/$1 [L]

*) This issue is reported only occur on some hosting servers, e.g. AWS (Amazon Web Service)

*For your information

  • CustomFunction.php in app\Libraries\ that automatically called in the load of web because it has been set in composer.json
  • Helper.php in app\Libraries\ that can be called in Controller/View by line code use App\Libraries\Helper; for call some helper functions


Please set APP_DEBUG to false on Production to disable Laravel Debugbar.

Session Driver Database

When using the database session driver, you will need to create a table to contain the session items. Below is an example Schema declaration for the table:

Schema::create('sessions', function ($table) {
    $table->string('ip_address', 45)->nullable();

You may use the session:table Artisan command to generate this migration:

php artisan session:table

php artisan migrate

Then you need make some changes in Illuminate\Session\DatabaseSessionHandler.php

protected function addUserInformation(&$payload)
    if ($this->container->bound(Guard::class)) {
        $payload['user_id'] = $this->userId();

        $larascms_user = \Session::get('admin');
        $payload['user_id'] = $larascms_user->id;

    return $this;

Maintenance Mode

When your application is in maintenance mode, a custom view will be displayed for all requests into your application. This makes it easy to "disable" your application while it is updating or when you are performing maintenance. A maintenance mode check is included in the default middleware stack for your application. If the application is in maintenance mode, an HttpException will be thrown with a status code of 503.

To enable maintenance mode, simply execute the down Artisan command:

php artisan down

To disable maintenance mode, use the up command:

php artisan up

Even while in maintenance mode, specific IP addresses or networks may be allowed to access the application using the command

php artisan down --allow= --allow=
