I am simply making an ajax call to store input data, but it returns html code of the file instead of the expected data.The files are latest.php & latest.js. This question has been asked several times but none of the solutions seem to be working for me. Could anybody please help me out?

What I have tried:

$(document).ready(function () {

    $('#myForm').on('submit', function () {

        var question = $('input[name=quest]').val();
        var answer = $('input[name=ans]').val();

            type: 'POST',
            url: 'latest.php',
            dataType: 'text',
            data: {
                quest: question,
                ans: answer

            success: function (result) {

                $('#message').html('Data saved successfully.');


            error: function (e) {

                alert('Error: ' + e);



        return false;

Are you serving the files from a webbrowser (does the address bar look like http://someserver/yourpage) and not just loading them into the browser as files from disk (the url will be like file://c:\somefolder\yourpage)?

It depends on what latest.php returns. It must be returning all the html so you need to change that.
