  1. Create Migration Table

  2. Using Migration File in Laravel php artisan make:migration create_uploads_table --create=uploads

Now, open the file database/migrations/{{datetime}}_create_uploads_table.php We will add below code inside the up() method.

Schema::create('uploads', function (Blueprint $table) {

Now open command line and run below command php artisan migrate

Model File into Laravel We will create FileUpload.php into Models/ folder the file location would be app/Models/FileUpload.php. Open file and add below code into this file.



namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Model;

class FileUpload extends Model
     * The attributes that are mass assignable.
     * @var array
    protected $fillable = [
        'user_id', 'group_id', 'filename', 'extension', 'filesize', 'location'

Create Routes and view file into Laravel

We will create view file to display upload form into laravel. We will use session to display upload success and error message.

We will create UploadContactsController.php file and define upload-file method. //App\Http\Controllers\Backend\UploadContactController.php


namespace App\Http\Controllers\Backend;

use App\Http\Requests\Backend\Contacts\UploadContactsRequest;
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use App\Jobs\UploadContacts;
use App\Models\FileUpload;
use App\Models\Group;
use Session;
class UploadContactsController extends Controller
     * Upload the contacts file
     * @param  App\Http\Requests\Backend\Contacts\UploadContactsRequest $request
     * @param  App\Models\Group $group
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function __invoke(UploadContactsRequest $request, Group $group)
        if ($request->file('filename')->isValid()) {

            $fileUpload = new FileUpload;
            $fileUpload->user_id = auth()->user()->id;
            $fileUpload->group_id = $group->id;
            $fileUpload->filename = $request->file('filename')->hashName();
            $fileUpload->extension = $request->file('filename')->extension();
            $fileUpload->filesize = $request->file('filename')->getClientSize();
            $fileUpload->location = $request->file('filename')->store('contact-files');
            toastr()->success('Data has been saved successfully!');

            flash()->success('Your file is currently being processed. You will be notified when done.');

            //UploadContacts::dispatch($fileUpload, $group)->onQueue('file-uploads');
            dispatch(new UploadContacts($fileUpload, $group))->onQueue('file-uploads');
        } else {
            flash()->error('There was a problem uploading your file. Please try again.');

        return back();
