Ajax communication between a web page and a web server suffers from very tight security restrictions. Data from the server will be accepted by the web page only if the page was loaded from the server.
Therefore the only way to properly test any Ajax code is to upload both the Web page and the PHP files to a web server (a local development server is not likely to work dues to useing localhost:// and a local file system), and test them from there.
In your example these are both one and the same file, but it must still be on a server with a domain.
I hope this helps.
