     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('files', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->id();
            $table->string('title', 50);
            $table->string('file', 220);
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

    /**
     * Reverse the migrations.
     *
     * @return void
     */
    public function down()
    {
        Schema::dropIfExists('files');
    }
};

<?php

namespace App\Models;

use Illuminate\Database\Eloquent\Factories\HasFactory;

{
    use HasFactory;

    protected $fillable = [
        'title', 'file'

{
    use WithFileUploads;

    public $file, $title;

    public function render()
    {
        return view('livewire.file-upload');
    }

    public function submit()
    {
        $validatedData = $this->validate([
            'title' => 'required',
            'file' => 'required',
        ]);
  
        $validatedData['file'] = $this->file->store('files', 'public');
  
        File::create($validatedData);
  
        session()->flash('message', 'File successfully Uploaded.');
    }
}
  • $this->file->store(‘files’, ‘public’); This will store uploaded file inside /storage/app/public/files. Also it will create a livewire-tmp folder inside /storage/app.

<div>
    <form wire:submit.prevent="submit" enctype="multipart/form-data">
  
        <div>
            @if(session()->has('message'))
                <div class="alert alert-success">
                    {{ session('message') }}
                </div>
            @endif
        </div>
      
        <div class="form-group">
            <label for="exampleInputName">Title:</label>
            <input type="text" class="form-control" id="exampleInputName" placeholder="Enter title" wire:model="title">
