Laravel 10 Custom Forgot & Reset Password

Hello developers! Welcome to an exciting journey into the world of Laravel 10, where we're about to dive deep into the realm of customizing the Forgot and Reset Password features.

As we all know, Laravel has been a game-changer in the PHP framework arena, and with each new version, it continues to evolve, bringing more flexibility and power to developers.

In this article, we'll be taking a hands-on approach to enhance our understanding of Laravel 10 by exploring how we can tailor the Forgot and Reset Password functionalities to meet our specific needs.

In this article, we'll see how to reset password in laravel 10, how to create a custom forgot password in laravel 9 and laravel 10, laravel reset passwords manually.

So, buckle up and get ready to empower your Laravel applications with custom, user-friendly, and secure password management.

Let's embark on this coding adventure together!

Implement custom Forgot and Reset Password functionalities in Laravel 10.

Step 1: Set Up the Laravel Project

If you haven't already, create a new Laravel project using Composer:

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel my-laravel-app

 

Step 2: Configure Database

Configure your database connection in the .env file with your database credentials.

DB_CONNECTION=mysql
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=your_database
DB_USERNAME=your_username
DB_PASSWORD=your_password

 

Step 3: Create "password_resets" table

If the password_resets the migration does not exist, you can create a new migration:

php artisan make:migration create_password_resets_table

Migration:

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Database\Migrations\Migration;
use Illuminate\Database\Schema\Blueprint;
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
  
class CreatePasswordResetsTable extends Migration
{
    /**
     * Run the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up(): void
    {
        Schema::create('password_resets', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->string('email')->index();
            $table->string('token');
            $table->timestamp('created_at')->nullable();
        });
    }
  
    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down(): void
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('password_resets');
    }
}

 

 

Step 4: Update Routes

In your routes/web.php file, update the routes.

<?php
  
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route;
  
use App\Http\Controllers\Auth\ForgotPasswordController;
  
/*
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
| Web Routes
|--------------------------------------------------------------------------
|
| Here is where you can register web routes for your application. These
| routes are loaded by the RouteServiceProvider within a group which
| contains the "web" middleware group. Now create something great!
|
*/
  
Route::get('forget-password', [ForgotPasswordController::class, 'showForgetPasswordForm'])->name('forget.password.get');
Route::post('forget-password', [ForgotPasswordController::class, 'submitForgetPasswordForm'])->name('forget.password.post'); 
Route::get('reset-password/{token}', [ForgotPasswordController::class, 'showResetPasswordForm'])->name('reset.password.get');
Route::post('reset-password', [ForgotPasswordController::class, 'submitResetPasswordForm'])->name('reset.password.post');	

 

Step 5: Create Controller

Generate a custom ForgotPasswordController for handling password-related functionalities

app/Http/Controllers/Auth/ForgotPasswordController.php

<?php 
  
namespace App\Http\Controllers\Auth; 
  
use App\Http\Controllers\Controller;
use Illuminate\Http\Request; 
use DB; 
use Carbon\Carbon; 
use App\Models\User; 
use Mail; 
use Hash;
use Illuminate\Support\Str;
use Illuminate\View\View;
use Illuminate\Http\RedirectResponse;
  
class ForgotPasswordController extends Controller
{
      /**
       * Write code on Method
       *
       * @return response()
       */
      public function showForgetPasswordForm(): View
      {
         return view('auth.forgetPassword');
      }
  
      /**
       * Write code on Method
       *
       * @return response()
       */
      public function submitForgetPasswordForm(Request $request): RedirectResponse
      {
          $request->validate([
              'email' => 'required|email|exists:users',
          ]);
  
          $token = Str::random(64);
  
          DB::table('password_resets')->insert([
              'email' => $request->email, 
              'token' => $token, 
              'created_at' => Carbon::now()
            ]);
  
          Mail::send('email.forgetPassword', ['token' => $token], function($message) use($request){
              $message->to($request->email);
              $message->subject('Reset Password');
          });
  
          return back()->with('message', 'We have e-mailed your password reset link!');
      }
      /**
       * Write code on Method
       *
       * @return response()
       */
      public function showResetPasswordForm($token): View
      { 
         return view('auth.forgetPasswordLink', ['token' => $token]);
      }
  
      /**
       * Write code on Method
       *
       * @return response()
       */
      public function submitResetPasswordForm(Request $request): RedirectResponse
      {
          $request->validate([
              'email' => 'required|email|exists:users',
              'password' => 'required|string|min:6|confirmed',
              'password_confirmation' => 'required'
          ]);
  
          $updatePassword = DB::table('password_resets')
                              ->where([
                                'email' => $request->email, 
                                'token' => $request->token
                              ])
                              ->first();
  
          if(!$updatePassword){
              return back()->withInput()->with('error', 'Invalid token!');
          }
  
          $user = User::where('email', $request->email)
                      ->update(['password' => Hash::make($request->password)]);
 
          DB::table('password_resets')->where(['email'=> $request->email])->delete();
  
          return redirect('/login')->with('message', 'Your password has been changed!');
      }
}	

 

Step 6: Configure Email for Password Reset

Open your .env file and add the necessary email configuration. This is essential as we'll be sending password reset links via email from our custom controller.

MAIL_MAILER=smtp
MAIL_HOST=your_smtp_host
MAIL_PORT=your_smtp_port
MAIL_USERNAME=your_smtp_username
MAIL_PASSWORD=your_smtp_password
MAIL_ENCRYPTION=your_smtp_encryption
MAIL_FROM_ADDRESS=your_email@example.com
MAIL_FROM_NAME="${APP_NAME}"

 

Step 7: Create Blade Files

Create a custom view for the Reset Password form.
