I am trying to create an hashed password for Laravel. Now someone told me to use Laravel hash helper but I can't seem to find it or I'm looking in the wrong direction.
How do I create a laravel hashed password? And where?
Edit: I know what the code is but I don't know where and how to use it so it gives me back the hashed password. If I get the hashed password then I can manually insert it into the database
Hashing A Password Using Bcrypt in
This will create a hashed password. You may use it in your controller or even in a model, for example, if a user submits a password using a form to your controller using
POSTmethod then you may hash it using something like this:
$hashedwill contain the hashed password. Basically, you'll do it when creating/registering a new user, so, for example, if a user submits details such as,
passwordetc using a form, then before you insert the data into database, you'll hash the password after validating the data. For more information, read the documentation.
So, you'll insert the
$hashedPasswordinto database. Hope, it's clear now and if still you are confused then i suggest you to read some tutorials, watch some screen casts on laracasts.com and tutsplus.com and also read a book on
Laravel, this is a free ebook, you may download it.
