Hi dev,

Laravel 'class "app\http\controllers\user" not found'. I will let you know example of laravel user class not found. I explained simply about laravel class 'app user' not found. I explained simply about laravel class 'user' not found.

You can solve 'Class "App\Http\Controllers\User" not found' issue in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8 and laravel 9 version.

Error Class 'App\Http\Controllers\User' not found occurs when you forget to include the user model in your controller.

So, let's start following example:


It was my fault there, If you are using User class in controller then you need to use model namespace there in Controller, Middleware, or blade file then you must have used model namespace on top.

so let's see bellow solution and example code here:


Then after add "use App\Models\User;" on top of controller, middleware, command, event or blade files. Let's see bellow:

use App\Models\User;

You can see controller file code, how to use it.

namespace App\Http\Controllers;
use Illuminate\Http\Request;
use App\Models\User;
class UserController extends Controller
     * Display a listing of the resource.
     * @return \Illuminate\Http\Response
    public function index(Request $request)
        $user = User::find(1);
        return view('users');

I hope it can help you...
