First of all, we need to download laravel fresh setup. Use the below command and download fresh new laravel setup :

composer create-project --prefer-dist laravel/laravel Blog

2). Setup Database

In this step, After successfully install laravel 7/6 Application. Then Go to your project .env file and set up database credential:

 DB_CONNECTION=mysql 
DB_HOST=127.0.0.1
DB_PORT=3306
DB_DATABASE=here your database name here
DB_USERNAME=here database username here
DB_PASSWORD=here database password here

3). Make Migration file with Model

Use the below command. It will create one model also with one migration file.

 php artisan make:model Contact -m 

Now go to Go to /database/migrations and open create_contacts_table.php file. Then add the below function into create_contacts_table.php file :

   public function up()
    {
        Schema::create('contacts', function (Blueprint $table) {
            $table->bigIncrements('id');
            $table->string('name');
            $table->string('email');
            $table->text('message');
            $table->timestamps();
        });
    }

Before we run php artisan migrate command go to app/providers/AppServiceProvider.php and put the below code :

..
use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Schema;
 
....
function boot()
{
    Schema::defaultStringLength(191);
}
... 

Next migrate the table using the below command.

php artisan migrate

Now go to app/Contact.php file and add the fillable properties like this :

protected $fillable = ['name', 'email', 'message'];

4). Make Route

Now, we will create two routes in web.php file. Go to app/routes/web.php file and create two below routes here :

 Route::get('form', '[email protected]');
Route::post('form-store', '[email protected]');

5). Create Controller

In this step, we need to create a controller name ContactController. Use the below command and create Controller :

php artisan make:controller ContactController 

After successfully create controller go to app/controllers/http//ContactController.php and put the below code :

<?php
namespace App\Http\Controllers;

use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use Validator,Redirect,Response;
use App\Contact;

class ContactController extends Controller
{

    public function index()
    {
      return view('contact');
    }

    public function store(Request $request)
    {
        $data = request()->validate([
        'name' => 'required',
        'email' => 'required|email',
        'message' => 'required'
        ]);
       
        $check = Contact::create($data);

        return Redirect::to("form")->withSuccess('Great! Form successfully submit with validation.');
    }
}

6). Create Blade view

In this step, we need to create one blade view file name contact.blade.php and update the below code into your file:

<html>
<head>
<title>Laravel Form Validation From Scratch</title>
<meta charset="utf-8">
<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1, shrink-to-fit=no">
