I am trying to call the php script with the help of AJAX and send some values acquired from an html form. My code editor is Microsoft Visual Studio Code.

My code:

function submit(a,b,c,d,em){
        console.log(a+" "+b+" "+c+" "+d+" "+em)   //shows the values correctly
            type : "POST",  //type of method
            url  : "script.php",  //your page
            data : { a:a, b:b, c:c, d:d, e:em },// passing the values
            success: function(){  
                                    //do what you want here...
    const dForm = document.getElementById('form');          
    dForm.addEventListener('submit', function(e) {

When I run the script, I get this error in the console:

Failed to load resource: the server responded with a status of 405 (Method Not Allowed)

Please help me in fixing this.

Here's my php script:

        header('Access-Control-Allow-Origin: *');
        header("Access-Control-Allow-Methods: GET, POST, OPTIONS");

        if (isset($_POST["a"]))
        if (isset($_POST["b"]))
        if (isset($_POST["c"]))
        if (isset($_POST["d"]))
        if (isset($_POST["e"]))

What I have tried:

Included both the core headers, but still it doesn't work (in my php scirpt).

The line that throws the error doesn't appear in either of your code blocks, and doesn't appear to be part of jQuery's ajax method. Is there some relevant code missing from your question?

Yes, sorry I forgot to include it before. The error is thrown by the above mentioned line in the jquery file mentioned in the script tag

Can you tell the solution to this problem w.r.t. the text editor Visual Studio code? I mean do I have to change any configuration file. I couldn't understand any of the contents given above.

Unfortunately you need to spend some time on articles & threads to fix your issues. For example, 1st thread suggesting to change POST into GET to get it worked. Try that first. Always execute minimum code to ensure it works.

You'll get more solutions if you search Internet.

I've tried using 'GET', it shows this error then, ERR_CONNECTION_RESET. Plus, I don't want to use GET, as my script has some sensitive information.

I've also tried with $_REQUEST, $_COOKIE. They also show the same error. Nothing works

Other threads have multiple tricks to fix the issue. And if you search web with same error message, you'll get more answers. This particular issue is not related to your code. It's related to IIS, Server, etc., things. So check other threads.
Sometime you'll get answers within minutes, sometime it'll take day or more. It depends.

I am working on Visual Studio Code editor, and I've searched in the internet, but I've found no solution regarding this editor (it's either Lavarel or Eclipse, etc). As far as I know, I need to change something in the web config file, but where is it?
