So, let's see file upload in laravel 9 or file upload example in laravel 9

 

Step 1 : Add Routes

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

<?php
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
use App\Http\Controllers\FileUploadController;

Route::get('file-upload', [FileUploadController::class, 'index']);
Route::post('file-upload', [FileUploadController::class, 'store'])->name('file.store');

 

 

Step 2: Create FileUploadController

Now, create new FileUploadController add two method index() and store(). here the first method will handle get method another one for post. So, copy the below code.

app/Http/Controllers/FileUploadController.php

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

    public function store(Request $request)
    {
        $request->validate([
            '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

In the blade file, we will create a basic form with an upload button. So, add the below code.

                    <button type="submit" class="btn btn-success">Upload</button>
                </div>
           
            </form>
