Here is my jQuery

   var cpData = $('#cpMinistriesList').DataTable({
 
        "Paging": true,
        "bLengthChange": true,
        "bInfo": true,
        "bAutoWidth": false,
        "processing": true,
        "serverSide": false,
        "order": [],
        "ajax": {
            url: "action.php",
            type: "POST",
            data: { action: 'cpMinistriesList' },
            dataType: "json"
        },
        "columnDefs": [{
            "targets": [0, 5],
            "orderable": true,
        }],
        "pageLength": 25,
        'rowCallback': function(row, data, index) {
            $(row).find('td').addClass('align-middle')
            $(row).find('td:eq(0), td:eq(3)').addClass('text-left')
        }
    });

Here is my php code that fetch records from table

        $result = mysqli_query($this->dbConnect, $sqlQuery);
        $numRows = mysqli_num_rows($result);
        $cpData = array();  
        while( $cp = mysqli_fetch_assoc($result) ) {    
            $cpRows = array();
            $status = '';
            
            $cpRows[] = $cp['id'];      
            $cpRows[] = $cp['cpno'];
            $cpRows[] = " Sample";
            //$cpRows[] = $cp['title']; 
            $cpRows[] = $cp['dec_date'];    
             $cpRows[] = " Not Implemented";
            //$letterRows[] = $status;      
            //$letterRows[] = $letter['name'];  
            $cpRows[] = '<div class="btn-group btn-group-sm"> <button type="button" name="update" id="'.$cp["id"].'" class="btn btn-primary btn-sm rounded-0 update" title="Update"><i class="fa fa-edit"></i></button><button type="button" name="upload" id="'.$cp["id"].'" class="btn btn-outline-secondary btn-sm rounded-0 upload" title="Upload"><i class="fa fa-cloud-upload"></i></button><button type="button" name="view" id="'.$cp["id"].'" class="btn btn-info btn-sm rounded-0" title="View"><i class="fa fa-eye"></i></button></div>';
            $cpRows[] = '<div class="btn-group btn-group-sm"><button type="action_taken" name="action_taken" id="action_taken" class="btn btn-success" title="Workflow">Action</div>';          
            $cpData[] = $cpRows;
                        
        }
        $outputData = array(
            //"draw"                =>  intval($_POST["draw"]),
            "recordsTotal"      =>  $numRows,
            "recordsFiltered"   =>  $numRows,
            "data"              =>  $cpData
        );
        echo json_encode($outputData);

    What is the JSON response from the server when it gets "stuck"? Hopefully it will contain an error message. You can look in the browser's Network inspector to check what the response from the server is.

    it shows nothing. just blank response window. by the way it shows invalid JSON response.

    That's likely the issue then (at least from DataTables' point of view). The next step would be to debug the server-side script you are using. Does the server's error log show anything? You might need to put trace statements into it to see what is going on.

    Can I do it using VS Code? I am new to server-side scripting and debugging. I came from front-end dev. environment.

    No - the server's error logs will be in a location defined by the HTTP server's configuration. That will depend on if you are using Nginx, Apache, Caddy or something else.

    You have action.php so the easiest think to do is to put echo "here"; statements into it and trace through what it is doing.

    got it cleared. The actual problem was with data itself. I used special extraction program to retrieve data from excel worksheet to MySQL db. I had data format issue with that. I cleared that bug, now system runs perfectly.
    Thanks for your support. cheers!!
