jQuery Question

Insert data to cpanel database

So I'm working on this project where users can sign up for the newsletter and their names get added to the online database. I am using the online database (CPanel - PhPMyAdmin) I've been stuck on what type of code am I supposed to use to add this data from my form to the database.

This is what I have so far and I'm not quite sure how to go from here. Any help is appreciated.

ALSO: I'm using Bootstrap3 and jquery/ajax

<div id="newsletter" class="container-fluid text-center">

<form id="signup-form" action="" method="">
<div class="input-prepend" ><span class="add-on"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-user"></i></span>
<label for="name">Your Full Name</label>
<input type="text" id="name" name="name" placeholder="your full name" size="40" style="color:black;" class="validate" required>

<div class="input-prepend"><span class="add-on"><i class="glyphicon glyphicon-envelope"></i></span>
<label for="email">Your Email</label>
<input type="email" id="email" name="email" placeholder="your@email.com" size="40" style="color:black;"class="validate" required>

<button id="sub" type="submit" class="btn btn-large"> Sign Up!</button>


Answer Source

You can use Ajax

Example -

$('#button').click(function() {//give id of submit button 
    var val1 = $('#text1').val();//get value you need to post
    var val2 = $('#text2').val();//get value you need to post
        type: 'POST',
        url: 'process.php',
        data: { text1: val1, text2: val2 },
        success: function(response) {
            $('#result').html(response);//responce you recevied 
    }); });

Get both values using Post method. Perform your action and send true false in the result.
