Call a PHP page (not blade) from a controller

Posted 2 years ago by jim1506

I have been battling Datatables with 5.4 without any success and have decided that I will have to walk another route as I cannot give it more time.

I have therefore a page in the public area in a subdirectory called ajax, datatables_users.php.

This page generates a datatable using server side processing fine (which I could never get to work in 5.4) so I just want to call it from a controller.

I have tried

return view("asset('ajax\datatables_user.php')") ;

but I am getting a

Class Barstone\Http\Controllers\../ajax/datatables_user.php does not exist

How can a call a "raw" php page from a controller?

Thanks
