Post Request In Laravel – Error – 419 Sorry, Your Session/ 419 Your Page Has Expired

The "419 Sorry, your session has expired" error in Laravel is usually related to a CSRF token mismatch. CSRF (Cross-Site Request Forgery) tokens are used to protect your application from cross-site request attacks.

To resolve this error, you can try the following steps:

  1. Make sure that your form includes the @csrf Blade directive within the form tags. This will generate a hidden input field containing the CSRF token.

    Example:

    <form>
        @csrf
        <!-- Your form fields -->
    </form>
    
  2. Ensure that you have the web middleware applied to your routes. The web middleware provides CSRF protection.

    Example:

    Route::post('/example', 'ExampleController@store')->middleware('web');
    
  3. Check if you are accidentally making the request without the CSRF token. If you are manually making a POST request using AJAX or an HTTP client, make sure to include the CSRF token in the request headers or form data.

    Example using Axios:

    axios.post('/example', {
        // Your data
    }, {
        headers: {
            'X-CSRF-TOKEN': document.querySelector('meta[name="csrf-token"]').getAttribute('content')
        }
    });
    

If the issue persists, consider checking your Laravel session configuration in config/session.php. Ensure that the lifetime value and encrypt option are appropriately set. Also, make sure that your cookies are not being blocked by any security settings or browser extensions.

By following these steps, you should be able to fix the "419 Sorry, your session has expired" error in Laravel when making a POST request.
