Can't figure out why AngularJS doesn't read JSON from PHP

I've spent hours trying to figure this out and browsing the web, but I must be doing something wrong. Every time i load the page it's just blank. I'm trying to load the database from mysqli to angularjs. The code is copied exactly from W3 exercises so I have no idea where the problem is.

dbaseread.php is in the same folder as the html.


 $query = "SELECT * FROM members";
    $result = $mysqli->query($query);
    $r = array();
    if( $result->num_rows>0){
    while($row = $result->fetch_assoc()){
    $r[] = $row;

    $res = json_encode($r);

    header('Content-Type: application/json');

    echo $res;


<!DOCTYPE html>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/angularjs/1.4.8/angular.min.js"></script>

<div ng-app="myApp" ng-controller="customersCtrl"> 

  <li ng-repeat="x in myData">
    {{ x.name }}


var app = angular.module('myApp', []);
app.controller('customersCtrl', function($scope, $http) {
  $http.get("dbaseread.php").then(function (response) {
      $scope.myData = response.data.records;

try $scope.myData = response.data. Doesn't look like any records property in the php. Inside the then can put console.log(response.data) then look in browser console at what is actually returned

There indeed wasn't any 'records' property, so removing it fixed the issue.
