Default Using ajax calls in template - 403 Forbidden Error

I am trying to use Ajax to pass some data to php file from template.

In template in javascript:


Code:
$(document).ready(function() { $(".redeem-button").click(function(){ var test = 'test'; $.ajax({ url: 'modules/Custom/ajaxtest.php', data: {test: test}, type: 'POST', success: function (data) { $(".apply-left").html(data); } }); }); });

When I test it, I get this error in console:

Code:
POST http://localhost/xcart/modules/Custom/ajaxtest.php 403 (Forbidden)

I tried to add:

Code:
require_once 'http://localhost/xcart/auth.php';

in ajaxtest.php but still no luck...

How do I make it work?

Usually, you don't call the modules directory directly in a script. Try placing your ajaxtest.php in the root directory.

Default Re: Using ajax calls in template - 403 Forbidden Error

This error is probably because /modules/.htaccess has "deny from all". Don't circumvent this security but call a php file outside of this directory.

Off the top of my head you may want to start with one of the Block examples like:
  1. skin/common_files/modules/Customer_Reviews/ajax.rating.js (calls loadBlock for rating_bar)
  2. skin/common_files/js/ajax.js (loadBlock calls get_block.php)
  3. get_block.php
  4. modules/Customer_Reviews/func.php (func_ajax_block_rating_bar())

Moving ajaxtest.php to root solved the problem! Thanks a lot, sir!

Thanks for these references, already found some good bits there!
