First of all, you need to install laravel if you have already then add routes in the routes/web.php file shown below.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
class FileUploadController extends Controller
    public function index()
        return view('fileUpload');

    public function store(Request $request)
            'file' => 'required|mimes:pdf,xlx,csv|max:1024',
        $fileName = time().'.'.$request->file->extension();  
        $request->file->move(public_path('uploads'), $fileName);
        return back()
            ->with('success','File Uploaded successfully.')
            ->with('file', $fileName);



Store File in Public Folder

$request->file->storeAs('uploads', $fileName); 

// storage/app/uploads/filename.jpg


Store File in S3

$request->file->storeAs('uploads', $fileName, 's3');


Store File in Storage Folder

$request->file->move(public_path('uploads'), $fileName);

// public/uploads/filename.jpg

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <title>Laravel 9 File Upload Example -</title>
    <link href="[email protected]/dist/css/bootstrap.min.css" rel="stylesheet">
<div class="container">
    <div class="panel panel-primary">
        <div class="panel-heading text-center mt-5">
            <h2>Laravel 9 File Upload Example -</h2>
        <div class="panel-body mt-5">
            @if ($message = Session::get('success'))
                <div class="alert alert-success alert-dismissible fade show mb-2" role="alert">
                    {{ $message }}
                    <button type="button" class="btn-close" data-bs-dismiss="alert" aria-label="Close"></button>
            <form action="{{ route('') }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">
                <div class="mb-3">
                    <label class="form-label" for="inputFile">Select File:</label>
                        class="form-control @error('file') is-invalid @enderror">
                        <span class="text-danger">{{ $message }}</span>
                <div class="mb-3">
                    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Upload</button>
