Problem with js web form buttons after moving app to new Debian Server

Discussion in 'Apache' started by jrsmith, Oct 13, 2017.

  1. #1
    First of all i'm a Sys Admin & my Systems Analyst doesn't know html, ajax, or javascript! My work inherited an old Debian 5.0 web server running Apache 2.2.9, PHP 5.0.51a-24+lenny1, & MySQL 5.0.51a. It runs a fairly simple person information database that we need to keep running so i've setup a virtuallized Debian 9.1 web server running Apache 2.4.25, php 7.0.19-1 & MariaDB 10.1.26. The webserver itself is operating fine. I've setup the sql database no problem, php is operating fine, I installed phpmyadmin & it's connecting just fine to the database with everything the same as the old server. After i moved the webserver files over I was getting some errors relating to the missing mysql api, so I got my systems analyst to update all of the php files to mysqli syntax.

    I am able to query the database & look up person info. The problem is when I try and add or modify a user using the buttons "add" or "update" instead of it adding or updating, it's bringing up a text box window with what appears to be the info that it should be sending to the database.

    I'm attaching a picture of the webform & text box that pops up after I click "add". I'm gonna paste what I think is the relevant sections of my html & javascript file, but i'm also gonna link to a zip of the full files.

    Any help will be super appreciated!!!
