In Laravel, you can use the previous() method from the Redirect facade to get the previous URL and then check and control it as needed. Here is an example of how you can do this:

  1. Import the required classes at the top of your file:
use IlluminateSupportFacadesRedirect;
use IlluminateHttpRequest;

  1. Use the previous() method to get the previous URL:
$previousUrl = url()->previous();

  1. Check and control the previous URL as needed. For example, you can check if the previous URL is from a specific route name:
if ($previousUrl == route('your-route-name')) {
    // Do something if the previous URL matches a specific route name
} else {
    // Do something else if the previous URL doesn't match the specific route name

  1. You can also redirect the user back to the previous URL using the Redirect::back() method:
return Redirect::back();

Note: When using Redirect::back(), Laravel will automatically redirect the user to the previous URL or to the default URL if the previous URL is not available.

Remember to import the required classes and use them as shown in the example above.
