DataTables - Server-side Processing in Codeigniter using Ajax

From this tutorial we have started learning one new topics in Codeigniter tutorial. In this topics we will discuss how can we make crud system by using Ajax with Codeigniter framework. In this system we will use DataTables Jquery plugin for display data in tabular format and we will also use Bootstrap modals for inserting and updating data. Here we will implement DataTables server side processing by using Ajax. This is the first part in which we will fetch data from Mysql table by using Ajax in Codeigniter Application and then after we will displaying that data in on web page by using DataTables jquery plugin with server side processing. In server side processing we have to write query for search, order and pagination at server side. This all things we will learn in this part. We have make simple query for all different condition like searching, ordering or even pagination and this query has been called by Ajax in codeigniter framework. So we can smoothly search table, can see data in different order or pagination which has been handle by Ajax server side processing in data tables. We can perform different operation in data table by using Ajax in Codeigniter application.
