I’m making a small game project with a leaderboard table.

I’m trying to get the leaderboard from a mysql database to display using jQuery ajax and PHP but its giving me an error message.

$("#leader-btn").click(function() {

        url: "leaderboard.php",
        dataType: "html",
        success: function(response) {
