We need an authentication system for keeping our application private. Making authentication in Laravel is quite easy. It has a built-in solution for authentication and various facility to customize it according to our requirements. If you are new in Laravel 9 then in this post I'll show you the step-by-step process for making an authentication system in Laravel 9. Let's follow the step-by-step process for making an authentication system in Laravel 9.

1. Install Laravel Project

First, open Terminal and run the following command to create a fresh laravel project:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel9-auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

or, if you have installed the Laravel Installer as a global composer dependency:

laravel new laravel9-auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

2. Configure Database Details:

After, Installation Go to the project root directory, open .env file, and set database detail as follow:

DB_CONNECTION=mysql 
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 
DB_PORT=3306 
DB_DATABASE=<DATABASE NAME>
DB_USERNAME=<DATABASE USERNAME>
DB_PASSWORD=<DATABASE PASSWORD>
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Now run the database migration command:

php artisan migrate
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

3: Create Auth using scaffold

Now, in this step, we will create auth scaffold command to create a login, register, and dashboard.

composer require laravel/ui
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for bootstrap

php artisan ui bootstrap
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for Vue

php artisan ui vue
php artisan ui vue --auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for react

php artisan ui react
php artisan ui react --auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Generate basic scaffolding

php artisan ui bootstrap
php artisan ui vue
php artisan ui react
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Generate login / registration scaffolding

php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
php artisan ui vue --auth
php artisan ui react --auth
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

4: Install NPM dependencies

Run this following command to install node dependency and compile CSS and js files:

npm install && npm run dev
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

5. Test the authentication system

Now our Laravel 9 Authentication is ready to use. To check authentication is successfully installed or not. First Run the project.

php artisan serve
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode
