Auth::attempt fails every time

Posted 3 years ago by toneee


I am trying to write a custom auth controller, but am having problems with the Auth::attempt part of a login. I have the default database setup and names. I think its a problem with the hashing of the password, but apparently this should happen automatically with the Auth::attempt function?

Here is my class, can anyone help please?

public function authenticate(Request $request)
    if (Auth::attempt(['email' => $request->email, 'password' => $request->password])) {
        echo "Login OK";
    else {
        echo "Login Failed";
