PHP Using PHP with MySQL Querying the Database with PHP Querying the Database

Where do you put the PHP if a jQuery event calls the connection to MySQL on a click() event?

Can anyone give me some examples of how to make it so if someone clicks on a DIV element that a foreach loop runs which connects to a MySQL database and then runs a query with a foreach loop. I would appreciate if you would do it in the PDO format with the -> and/or with mysqli (with the i) since that is what I see around the most.

Do you put the PHP code in the .js folder on a file that ends in .js OR in the index.php folder. I am so confused how to mix PHP with jQuery and where to put it when you are running a query.

I think What you want to know is AJAX, download and try to understand this example http://www.91weblessons.com/php-ajax-login-validation-tutorial/ is quite easy and common task to learn using AJAX. Your request wasn't so clear to me, I hope this would help you.
