By Hardik Savani November 5, 2023 Category : Laravel

Today, I will let you know example of laravel user class not found. you can see Laravel Class "App\Http\Controllers\User" not found. if you have question about class 'apphttpcontrollersuser' not found laravel then I will give simple example with solution. I explained simply about laravel class 'app user' not found.

You can solve 'Class "App\Http\Controllers\User" not found' issue in laravel 6, laravel 7, laravel 8, laravel 9 and laravel 10 version.

A few days ago I was working on my laravel app and I simply getting users from user model class. When I run the project then I found 'Class "App\Http\Controllers\User" not found' error. you can see bellow screenshot as well.


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:


You must need to 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...
