jQuery ajax GET example with PHP

jQuery Ajax is the powefull tool of jQuery, You can create attractive webpage with the help of JQuery ajax. jQuery's Ajax methods return a superset of the XMLHTTPResuest object.

There are two commonly used methods for a request between a client and server: GET and POST.


GET - Requests data from a specified resource, basically used for just retrieving some data from the server.


POST - Submits data to be processed to a specified resource, used for setting some data to the server and also can retrieving tha data. POST method never caches data.


Ajax request is just like a web page call. Only difference is that the user doesn’t have to reload the page and user operation will be performed. Before you call a Ajax request you need to set JQuery link in your page, You can also download it.

<script src="https://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/3.2.1/jquery.min.js"></script>


Let’s get start with a basic JQuery Ajax GET request:

    type: "GET",
    url: 'server.php',
    success: function(data){
    error: function (Status, errorThrown) {


Now create a Ajax page on your project where you can place your MySQL code with php script. You can set your file name like server_ajax.php



if(isset($_GET['action']) && $_GET['action'] == 'get_record'])){

  $mysql_query = mysqli_query($conn, "Select * from my_ajax");
  while($mysql_rows = mysqli_fetch_array($mysql_query)){
     $firstname = $mysql_rows['firstname'];
     $lastname = $mysql_rows['lastname'];
     $email = $mysql_rows['email'];

     echo 'firstname: '.$firstname.'<br>';
     echo 'lastname : '.$lastname .'<br>';
     echo 'email : '.$email .'<br>';
  echo "Something went wrong";



Finally create your index page to call server_ajax.php:

<!DOCTYPE html>
    <html lang="en">
    <meta charset="utf-8">
    <title>JQuery Ajax POST Example</title>
    <script src="https://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.12.4.min.js"></script>

    <script type="text/javascript">

            type: "GET",
            url: 'server_ajax.php',
            data: {action: 'get_record'},
            success: function(data){

        <div id="result"></div>
