Laravel provides a very simple and cool UI package for the easy step of auth scaffolding. Laravel UI composer package provides simple authentication features like login, registration, password reset, email verification, and password confirmation using bootstrap, react, and vue.
We need an authentication system for keeping our application private. Making authentication in Laravel is quite easy. It has a built-in solution for authentication and various facility to customize it according to our requirements. If you are new in Laravel 9 then in this post I'll show you the step-by-step process for making an authentication system in Laravel 9.

1. Install Laravel Project
First, open Terminal and run the following command to create a fresh laravel project:
composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel laravel9-auth
or, if you have installed the Laravel Installer as a global composer dependency:
laravel new laravel9-auth
2. Configure Database Details:
After, Installation Go to the project root directory, open .env file, and set database detail as follow:
DB_CONNECTION=mysql DB_HOST=127.0.0.1 DB_PORT=3306 DB_DATABASE=<DATABASE NAME> DB_USERNAME=<DATABASE USERNAME> DB_PASSWORD=<DATABASE PASSWORD>
Now run the database migration command:
php artisan migrate
3: Create Auth using scaffold
Now, in this step, we will create auth scaffold command to create a login, register, and dashboard.
composer require laravel/ui
Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for bootstrap
php artisan ui bootstrap php artisan ui bootstrap --auth
Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for Vue
php artisan ui vue php artisan ui vue --auth
Generate basic scaffolding and login and registration for react
php artisan ui react php artisan ui react --auth
Generate basic scaffolding
php artisan ui bootstrap php artisan ui vue php artisan ui react
Generate login / registration scaffolding
php artisan ui bootstrap --auth php artisan ui vue --auth php artisan ui react --auth
4: Install NPM dependencies
Run this following command to install node dependency and compile CSS and js files:
npm install && npm run dev
5. Test the authentication system
