Target class [admin] does not exist.

I got error Target class [admin] does not exist while using admin middleware to authenticate admin users because I did not use the admin middleware 'admin' => 'App\Http\Middleware\Admin', in app\Http\Kernel.php file. Hope it will help you to find the solution for you

  • Create Admin middleware to authenticate admin users

    //1. Create middleware to authenticate admin users using php artisan command</span></p>
    php artisan make:middleware Admin
    //2. Edit middleware Admin.php
    public function handle($request, Closure $next)
        if (Auth::check() && Auth::user()->user_type == 'admin') 
            return $next($request);
        else {
            return redirect('/');
    //3. <span style="font-weight: 400;">Add it to the routeMiddleware array in your kernel file
    protected $routeMiddleware = [
        'admin' => 'App\Http\Middleware\Admin',
    //4. <span style="font-weight: 400;">Use Admin middleware to Route group
    Route::middleware(['admin'])->group(function () {
        Route::get('admin/dashboard', '[email protected]')->name('admin.dashboard');
