First of all i'm a Sys Admin & my Systems Analyst doesn't know html, ajax, or javascript! My work inherited an old Debian 5.0 web server running Apache 2.2.9, PHP 5.0.51a-24+lenny1, & MySQL 5.0.51a. It runs a fairly simple person information database that we need to keep running so i've setup a virtuallized Debian 9.1 web server running Apache 2.4.25, php 7.0.19-1 & MariaDB 10.1.26. The webserver itself is operating fine. I've setup the sql database no problem, php is operating fine, I installed phpmyadmin & it's connecting just fine to the database with everything the same as the old server. After i moved the webserver files over I was getting some errors relating to the missing mysql api, so I got my systems analyst to update all of the php files to mysqli syntax.

I am able to query the database & look up person info. The problem is when I try and add or modify a user using the buttons "add" or "update" instead of it adding or updating, it's bringing up a text box window with what appears to be the info that it should be sending to the database.

I'm attaching a picture of the webform & text box that pops up after I click "add". What i think are the relevant code sections are below. I'm also adding a link to download the index.html & the two associated javascript files.

Any help will be super appreciated!!!

This is the button I was clicking on (update)

<div class="divBut">
<span><button onclick="notice(1);return false;">Summary</button><button onclick="setPersonInfo('New');clearAllForms();return false;">Add</button><button onclick="setPersonInfo();return false;">Update</button><button onclick="clearAllForms();return false;">Clear All</button></span>

This is the function setPersonInfo from the file utils.js:

function setPersonInfo (writeMode)
var onSuccessFunc = function (ajaxClassReference) { alert(ajaxClassReference.getResponseText()); };
var onErrorFunc = function (status) { alert("setPersonInfo AJAX error: "+status); };

var url = window.location + "php/insertPerson.php?Mode=";
if(writeMode == "New")
url += "New";
url += "Update";

var setPersonInfoAjax = new ajaxClass();
setPersonInfoAjax.serializeFormToURI( url, "pplinfo" );
setPersonInfoAjax.XMLreq( "", "GET", onSuccessFunc, onErrorFunc );

The issue is clear. The php code isn't executed.
First guess change <? to <?php
