After successfully uploading my laravel app on droplet I am unable to login into my dashboard.

When I enter my username and password. The login form just refreshes, no error shown even I enter wrong information. When I check on the network tab in developer mode I only see this Request Method: GET Status Code: 302 Found

Hi there,

What you might have to do is to set your Larave APP_URL in your .env file to exactly match the domain name that you are using. Also make sure to use the correct protocol, for example, if you are using an SSL, make sure to define your APP_URL with https:// rather than http://.

If this does not help, here are some steps you can take to troubleshoot this issue:

  1. Check Laravel logs: Look for any error messages or warnings in the Laravel logs that might be related to the issue. By default, Laravel logs can be found in the storage/logs directory within your application.

  2. Verify your authentication configuration: Ensure that your authentication configuration in the Laravel app is set up correctly. Check the configuration files in the config directory, especially config/auth.php. Make sure that the settings are appropriate for your application, and that the user provider and guard are correctly configured.

  3. Check your database connection: Ensure that your application can connect to the database and that the user table is correctly set up with the required fields (e.g., email, password). Make sure your .env file has the correct database configuration, and that the database user has the necessary permissions.

  4. Examine your login controller: Review the code in your login controller to ensure that it is correctly handling authentication requests. Make sure that the controller is using the right authentication guard and that the validation rules for the login form are correctly set up. If you have made customizations to the default Laravel authentication logic, double-check that they are working as expected.

  5. Check your web server configuration: Verify that your web server is properly configured to serve your Laravel application. If you are using Nginx or Apache, check the configuration files to ensure that URL rewriting is enabled and correctly set up for your application.

Let me know how it goes!
