In Laravel, you can remove a file from a file input by simply deleting the file from the storage or public folder where it is stored.


Here is how you can remove a file from a file input in Laravel:

  1. First, retrieve the file path from the file input in your controller or request:
1
$filePath = $request->file('file')->getPathname();


  1. Use the unlink method to delete the file from the storage or public folder:
1
2
3
if (file_exists($filePath)) {
    unlink($filePath);
}


  1. Lastly, you can update your database or model to remove the file path from the record if needed:
1
2
3
// Delete file path from database
$model->file_path = null;
$model->save();


By following these steps, you can easily remove a file from a file input in Laravel.
