git clone https://github.com/Laravel-Backpack/demo.git backpack-demo
2) Set your database information in your

3) Install all the requirements:
cd backpack-demo composer install
4) Populate the database and stuff:
php artisan key:generate php artisan migrate php artisan db:seed --class="Backpack\Settings\database\seeds\SettingsTableSeeder" php artisan db:seed

Depending on your vhost configuration you might need to access the application via a different url, for example if you're using
artisan serveyou can access it on http://127.0.0.1:8000/admin - if you're using Laravel Valet, then it may look like http://backpack-demo.test/admin - you will need to access the url which matches your systems configuration. If you do not understand how to configure your virtual hosts, we suggest watching Laracasts Episode #1 to quickly get started.
