So you have to simple select file and then it will upload in "uploads" directory of public folder. So you have to simple follow bellow step and get file upload in laravel 7 application.

In next step, we will add new two routes in web.php file. One route for generate form and another for post method So let's simply create both route as bellow listed:

routes/web.php

Route::get('file-upload', '[email protected]')->name('file.upload');

Route::post('file-upload', '[email protected]')->name('file.upload.post');

Step 3: Create FileUploadController

In third step we will have to create new FileUploadController and here we have to write two method fileUpload() and fileUploadPost(). So one method will handle get method another one for post. So let's add code.

app/Http/Controllers/FileUploadController.php

<?php

namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;

class FileUploadController extends Controller

{

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function fileUpload()

{

return view('fileUpload');

}

/**

* Display a listing of the resource.

*

* @return \Illuminate\Http\Response

*/

public function fileUploadPost(Request $request)

{

$request->validate([

'file' => 'required|mimes:pdf,xlx,csv|max:2048',

]);

$fileName = time().'.'.$request->file->extension();

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

return back()

->with('success','You have successfully upload file.')

->with('file',$fileName);

}

}

Step 3: Create Blade File

At last step we need to create fileUpload.blade.php file and in this file we will create form with file input button. So copy bellow and put on that file.

resources/views/fileUpload.blade.php

<!DOCTYPE html>

<html>

<head>

<title>laravel 7 file upload example - .com</title>

<link rel="stylesheet" href="http://getbootstrap.com/dist/css/bootstrap.css">

<body>

<div class="container">

<div class="panel panel-primary">

<div class="panel-heading"><h2>laravel 7 file upload example - .com</h2></div>

<div class="panel-body">

@if ($message = Session::get('success'))

<div class="alert alert-success alert-block">

<button type="button" class="close" data-dismiss="alert">×</button>

<strong>{{ $message }}</strong>

</div>

<img src="uploads/{{ Session::get('file') }}">

@endif

@if (count($errors) > 0)

<div class="alert alert-danger">

<strong>Whoops!</strong> There were some problems with your input.

<ul>

@foreach ($errors->all() as $error)

<li>{{ $error }}</li>

@endforeach

</ul>

</div>

@endif

<form action="{{ route('file.upload.post') }}" method="POST" enctype="multipart/form-data">

@csrf

<div class="row">

<div class="col-md-6">

<input type="file" name="file" class="form-control">

</div>

<div class="col-md-6">

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

</div>

</div>

</form>

</div>

</div>

</div>

</body>

</html>

Step 4: Create "uploads" Directory
