Auth::user() returns null value

Posted 1 year ago by galih56


I'm working on username authentication. I thought my LoginController is working perfectly.But when i go to the page and do login.The page will be stay on login page.I checked my code,when i use dd(Auth::user()) in my HomeController. it always return null value.

i read some discussion on stackoverflow.People said i have to use this in the loginController's constructor.

    return $next($request)

but it doesn't work in my project.

I'm sure the only reason why my login page cannot redirect to the next page is because the Auth::user() have null value.But i don't know how to fix that.

can someone help me??
