Sending REST Call to Google Cloud PHPMyAdmin Server not working?

Questions:

I have successfully deployed a phpMyAdmin server on Google Cloud by following this link. I am having trouble trying to write to a database that I made in phpMyAdmin. I am trying to create a Notification Service based on the new Firebase Cloud Messaging that Google has released.

NotificationInstanceService.java

public class NotificationInstanceService extends FirebaseInstanceIdService {
    private static final String TAG = "NotificationInstance";

    @Override
    public void onTokenRefresh() {

        //Getting registration token
        String refreshedToken = FirebaseInstanceId.getInstance().getToken();

        //Displaying token on logcat
        Log.d(TAG, "Refreshed token: " + refreshedToken);

        sendRegistrationToServer(refreshedToken);

    }

    private void sendRegistrationToServer(String token) {
        //You can implement this method to store the token on your server
        //Not required for current project
        OkHttpClient client = new OkHttpClient();
        //Create the request body
        RequestBody body = new FormBody.Builder().add("Token", token).build();
        //Know where to send the request to
        Request request = new Request.Builder().url("<db link>.appspot.com/fcm/register.php")
                .post(body)
                .build();
        //Create
        try {
            client.newCall(request).execute();
        } catch (IOException e) {
            e.printStackTrace();
        }

    }
}

And I deployed, on https://<db link>.appspot.com, a file under /fcm/register.php which looks like so:

register.php

<?php
    if (isset($_POST["Token"])) {

           $_uv_Token=$_POST["Token"];
           $conn = mysqli_connect("<db link>.appspot.com","root","","fcm") or die("Error connecting");
           $q="INSERT INTO users (Token) VALUES ( '$_uv_Token') "
              ." ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE Token = '$_uv_Token';";

      mysqli_query($conn,$q) or die(mysqli_error($conn));
      mysqli_close($conn);
    }
 ?>

I am confused because I don’t seem to be writing anything to my database called users which I know I already created in the MySQL server created on phpMyAdmin. I know that the user name and password are also already set on register.php. Is there any way I can debug whether or not my script is actually going into the PHP code? How can I debug the PHP code? I also that the Request is actually being built as I can debug through that part of the code. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

EDIT: Some files that may be helpful that I created when trying to deploy my server:

app.yaml:

application: <app server url>
service: default
runtime: php55
api_version: 1
version: alpha-001

handlers:

  upload: (.+\.(ico|jpg|png|gif))$
  application_readable: true

- url: /(.+\.(htm|html|css|js))$
  static_files: 
  upload: (.+\.(htm|html|css|js))$
  application_readable: true

- url: /(.+\.php)$
  script: 
  login: admin

- url: /.*
  script: index.php
  login: admin

- url: /.*
  script: register.php

config.inc.php:

<?php 
$cfg['blowfish_secret'] = '<Secret>'; /* YOU MUST FILL IN THIS FOR COOKIE AUTH! */

// Change this to use the project and instance that you've created.
$host = '/cloudsql/<app server url>:us-central1:<database name>-app-php';
$type = 'socket';

/*

$i++;
/* Authentication type */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['auth_type'] = 'cookie';

$cfg['Servers'][$i]['socket'] = $host;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['connect_type'] = $type;
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['compress'] = false;
/* Select mysql if your server does not have mysqli */
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['extension'] = 'mysqli';
$cfg['Servers'][$i]['AllowNoPassword'] = true;
/*

$cfg['UploadDir'] = '';
$cfg['SaveDir'] = '';

$cfg['PmaNoRelation_DisableWarning'] = true;

$cfg['CheckConfigurationPermissions'] = false;
// [END all]

<?php
    if (isset($_REQUEST["Token"])) {

           $_uv_Token=$_REQUEST["Token"];
           $conn = mysqli_connect("/cloudsql/<Database ServerURL>","root","","FCM") or die("Error connecting");
           $q="INSERT INTO users (Token) VALUES ( '$_uv_Token') "

 ?>

NotificationInstanceService.java

New POST Request:

    Request request = new Request.Builder().url("<Application Server>/fcm/register.php?Token=123")
            .post(body)
            .build();
Answers:

I don’t know what exactly is your question, it’s not clear. but since you asked: Is there any way I can debug whether or not my script is actually going into the PHP code? How can I debug the PHP code? here is your answer:

Change your php code to this:

<?php
    if (isset($_POST["Token"])) {

           $_uv_Token=$_POST["Token"];
           $conn = mysqli_connect("<db link>.appspot.com","root","","fcm") or die("Error connecting");
           $q="INSERT INTO users (`Token`) VALUES ( `{$_uv_Token}`) "
              ." ON DUPLICATE KEY UPDATE `Token` = `{$_uv_Token}`;";

      mysqli_query($conn,$q) or die(mysqli_error($conn));
      mysqli_close($conn);
    } else {
        echo "Token is not set!";
    }
?>

then in NotificationInstanceService.java check the response of OkHttpClient call:

...
    try {
        Response response = client.newCall(request).execute();
    } catch (IOException e) {
        e.printStackTrace();
    }

    if (!response.isSuccessful()){
        Log.w(TAG, "Unexpected response"+response.toString());
    } else {
        Log.w(TAG, "response: "+response.body().string());
    }
...
