In Laravel, you can set the protocol for a route using the forceScheme method. This method allows you to specify the protocol (HTTP or HTTPS) that you want to force for the route. This can be useful if you want to ensure that a specific route always uses a particular protocol, regardless of the incoming request.

To set the protocol on a Laravel route, you need to chain the forceScheme method on the route definition. Here's an example:

use Illuminate\Support\Facades\Route; Route::get('/example', function () { return "This route always uses HTTPS!"; })->forceScheme('https');

In this example, the route defined with the get method will always use HTTPS, even if the request comes in as HTTP. The forceScheme method ensures that the URL generated for this route will always have the https scheme.

Note that this will only affect the generated URLs for the route and will not enforce the protocol on incoming requests. If you need to enforce HTTPS on all incoming requests, you can do that at the web server level or by using middleware in Laravel.
