Ajax POST – 500 Internal Server Error

Posted 3 years ago by TMCO

I'm trying to learn how to use AJAX in my Laravel application and I'm struggling with the POST method.

For testing, I've got a basic controller that simply returns true, but when I inspect my network tab, the AJAX POST to my controller is returning a 500 Internal Server Error.

$'', data).success(function(response) {

public function test() {
    return true;

Any idea what could be going wrong?
