Inserting data from front end to mysql db in angularjs

I am trying to insert data from front end to mysql db using angularjs. But it is not geting inserted to the db even though there are no error messages. Following is the code that I use.

index.html

<html ng-app="demoApp">
<head>
<title> AngularJS Sample</title>
<script src="js/angular.min.js"></script>
<script src="js/angular-route.min.js"></script>
<script type="text/javascript" src="js/script.js"></script>
</head>
<body>
<div class="container" ng-view>
</div>
</body>
</html>


script.js

demoApp.config( function ($routeProvider,$locationProvider) {
$routeProvider
.when('/',
{
controller: 'SimpleController',
templateUrl: 'Partials/view1.html'
})
.when('/view2',
{
controller: 'SimpleController',
templateUrl: 'Partials/view2.html'
})
.otherwise({redirectTo: '/'});
});
demoApp.controller('SimpleController',function ($scope,$http){
$http.post('server/view.php').success(function(data){
$scope.friends = data;
});;
$scope.addNewFriend = function(add){
var data = {
fname:$scope.newFriend.fname,
lname:$scope.newFriend.lname
}
$http.post("server/insert.php",data).success(function(data, status, headers, config){
console.log("inserted Successfully");
});
$scope.friends.push(data);
$scope.newFriend = {
fname:"",
lname:""
};
};
});


View1.html

<div class="container" style="margin:0px 100px 0px 500px;">
Name:<input type="text" ng-model="filter.name">
<br/>
<ul>
<li ng-repeat="friend in friends | filter:filter.name | orderBy:'fname'">{{friend.fname}} {{friend.lname}}</li>
</ul>
<br/>
<fieldset style="width:200px;">
<legend>Add Friend</legend>
<form name="addcustomer" method="POST">
First Name:<input type="text" ng-model="newFriend.fname" name="firstname"/>
<br/>
Last Name :<input type="text" ng-model="newFriend.lname" name="lastname"/>
<br/>
<button data-ng-click="addNewFriend()" name="add">Add Friend</button>
</form>
</fieldset>
<a href="#/view2" style="margin:auto;">Next</a>
</div>


and following is my php file

insert.php

<?php
if(isset($_POST['add']))
{
$firsname=$_POST['firstname'];
$laname = $_POST['lastname'];
mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_select_db("angularjs") or die(mysql_error());
mysql_query("INSERT INTO friends (fname,lname) VALUES ('$firsname', '$laname')");
Print "Your information has been successfully added to the database.";
}
?>


I know I am doing something stupid here. I have just started to learn angularjs today.
when i try the php code with plain html to insert into db it works perfectly.I am not getting what I am doing wrong here. Hope someone will help me out here

Answer

Your script for inserting the data is wrong. Replace it with the following

$http.post("server/insert.php",{'fstname': $scope.newFriend.fname, 'lstname': $scope.newFriend.lname})
        .success(function(data, status, headers, config){
            console.log("inserted Successfully");
        });

and also change the php as follows.

$data = json_decode(file_get_contents("php://input"));
$fstname = mysql_real_escape_string($data->fstname);
$lstname = mysql_real_escape_string($data->lstname);
mysql_connect("localhost", "root", "") or die(mysql_error()); 
mysql_select_db("angularjs") or die(mysql_error()); 
mysql_query("INSERT INTO friends (fname,lname) VALUES ('$fstname', '$lstname')"); 
Print "Your information has been successfully added to the database."; 

This worked for me when I tried with your code.
