Jquery $.ajax not working

<form name="uploadp" id="uploadp" action="queries/basicintro.php" onsubmit="submitProfile(eve)" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" > <span class="fa fa-camera upload" id="uploadpic"></span> <input type="file" class="form-control opacity0" onchange="this.form.submit()" name="uploadprofile" id="uploadprofile"> <!-- <input type="submit" class="btn btn-success" id="button" name="btnform"> --> </form> <div id="msg"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">

function submitProfile(eprofile){

    var uploadprofile = $('#uploadprofile').val();

        url: 'queries/basicintro.php',
        data: {
            'uploadprofile': uploadprofile,

Just looking at your function call - you have

<input type="file"  class="form-control opacity0" onchange="submitProfile(this.form.submit())"   name="uploadprofile" id="uploadprofile">

but then in your JS your function doesn't appear to input any arguments.

function submitProfile()

I see you call eprofile.preventDefault() - so should this be passed as an argument to then prevent the form submit event from reloading the page?

function submitProfile(eprofile)

I have never used AJAX but from a code POV, something seems off there. Maybe I'm wrong so not put this as an actual answer.

Add some console.log() at various points of the function. Check which ones appear and which don't and use that as a basis to debug your code. Check whether all your variables are printing correctly, check there are no syntax errors as well to be sure.
