How to do $http POST with AngularJS in php

Doing a POST request in AngularJS is bit tricky. If you do it like below, you cannot access the POST variables with $_POST or $_REQUEST via php. With the below method, you can access POST variables only via file_get_contents();

How to get POST values with above method

The reason is, AngularJS doesn’t serialize the data ( parameters ) passed to the POST request automatically. Therefore we have to serialize the data with $.params() which is available in jQuery . Also the default content-type of the posted data is application/json. Therefore we need to override the Content-type headers of the post request to application/x-www-form-urlencoded in order to access the the posted values via $_POST or $_REQUEST

You can access POST values in above method as shown below.
