echo '{ "success": true, "msg": "Logged In" }';


but i get this error

Uncaught Ext.JSON.decode(): You're trying to decode an invalid JSON String: <?$user = $_POST['usrname'];echo '{ "success": true, "msg": "Logged In" }';?>

Looks like the php is not executed but only served as a text/html file. What happens is you call the page in a browser and you just echo something. Do you get the whole content (inclu code) of the php file?

Then it is a matter of your webserver configuration that it executes php files
