To update an image file in Laravel, follow these steps:

  1. Open the controller file in which you want to update the image file.
  2. Add the necessary import statement at the top of the file:
1
use IlluminateSupportFacadesStorage;


  1. Inside the update method, retrieve the existing data from the database:
1
$existingData = YourModel::findOrFail($id);


  1. Check if a new image file has been uploaded:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5
 6
 7
 8
 9
10
if ($request->hasFile('image')) {
    // Delete the existing image file if it exists
    Storage::delete($existingData->image);

    // Store the new image file
    $path = $request->file('image')->store('images');

    // Update the image file path in the database
    $existingData->image = $path;
}


  1. Save the updated data to the database:
1
$existingData->save();


Make sure to replace "YourModel" with the name of your model class and "image" with the name of the column in your database table that stores the image file path.


Remember to handle form validation and file validation according to your needs.
