blocked by CORS :The 'Access-Control-Allow-Origin' header contains multiple values '*, *',

All we need is an easy explanation of the problem, so here it is.

public function handle(Request $request, Closure $next)
        header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin : *');
        header('Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET, POST, DELETE, PATCH, PUT' );
        header('Access-Control-Allow-Headers : Content-type, X-Auth-Token, Authorization, Origin');
        return $next($request);

I tried to post information in Forms by angular but I got this error:

Access to XMLHttpRequest at ‘http://localhost:8000/api/register’ from origin ‘http://localhost:4200’ has been blocked by CORS policy: The ‘Access-Control-Allow-Origin’ header contains multiple values ‘*, *’, but only one is allowed.
register.component.ts:43 HttpErrorResponse {headers: HttpHeaders, status: 0, statusText: "Unknown Error", url: "http://localhost:8000/api/register", ok: false, …}

How to solve :

I know you bored from this bug, So we are here to help you! Take a deep breath and look at the explanation of your problem. We have many solutions to this problem, But we recommend you to use the first method because it is tested & true method that will 100% work for you.

Method 1

Laravel 8 ships already with cors support, so you probably already defined the * value there.

Check your config/cors.php file, it probably it something like this:

return [

    | Cross-Origin Resource Sharing (CORS) Configuration
    | Here you may configure your settings for cross-origin resource sharing
    | or "CORS". This determines what cross-origin operations may execute
    | in web browsers. You are free to adjust these settings as needed.
    | To learn more:

    'paths' => ['api/*', 'sanctum/csrf-cookie'],

    'allowed_methods' => ['*'],

    'allowed_origins' => ['*'],

    'allowed_origins_patterns' => [],

    'allowed_headers' => ['*'],

    'exposed_headers' => [],

    'max_age' => 0,

    'supports_credentials' => false,


adjust the path list accordingly to your needs

Note: Use and implement method 1 because this method fully tested our system.
