To create and manage sessions in Laravel, you can follow these steps:

  1. Start by installing Laravel if you haven't already. You can use Composer to create a new Laravel project or install Laravel in an existing one.
  2. Configure your application's session settings. In your .env file, you can modify the desired session driver, lifetime, and other related configuration options.
  3. To begin a session, you need to use the start() method. This can be done in a controller, route closure, or middleware. For example, you can add the following code to your controller's constructor:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
use IlluminateSupportFacadesSession;

class YourController extends Controller
{
    public function __construct()
    {
        $this->middleware(function ($request, $next) {
            Session::start();
            return $next($request);
        });
    }

    // ...
}


  1. After starting the session, you can store data in the session using the put() method. For example, you can store a value with a key like this:
1
2
3
4
5
6
use IlluminateSupportFacadesSession;

public function storeData(Request $request)
{
    Session::put('key', 'value');
}


  1. To retrieve the stored value from the session, you can use the get() method:
1
2
3
4
5
6
7
use IlluminateSupportFacadesSession;

public function retrieveData()
{
    $value = Session::get('key');
    return $value;
}


  1. Besides the put() and get() methods, there are other helpful methods for working with sessions, such as has(), pull(), forget(), etc. You can explore these methods in Laravel's documentation.


Note: Make sure your routes are registered within the web middleware group, as sessions require this group to function correctly.
