PHP Question

preg_match(): No ending delimiter '/'

I have tested and implemented regex in laravel but it show me the error. Please look into this

EmployerSignupRequest.php

'ephone' => 'required|regex:/^[((\+)|0)[.\- ]?[0-9][.\- ]?[0-9][.\- ]?[0-9]+$/',


and i am getting this error.

preg_match(): No ending delimiter '/' found' in /var/www/html/jobma/vendor/laravel/framework/src/Illuminate/Validation/Validator.php:1370

when i run this in core php, This is working fine

<?php
$subject = "+91-9041742722";
$pattern = '/^[((\+)|0)[.\- ]?[0-9][.\- ]?[0-9][.\- ]?[0-9]+$/';
preg_match($pattern, substr($subject,3), $matches, PREG_OFFSET_CAPTURE);
print_r($matches);
?>

Answer

I think you are missing syntax here.You can use below pattern for your regular expression.

array('phone' => 'required', 'required|regex:/^\+?[^a-zA-Z]{5,}$/');
