We would be very happy to help you out.
First of all, you should start by doing the post data option from a JotForm. Please follow this guide and see the posted data on your screen.
Here is the demo form from the guide:
You can clone this form and test it on your side:
After that, you will set up your variables and prevent SQL injection.
Let me briefly tell you about SQL Injection. If the posted data contains an SQL query like:
then if you don't prevent it with the function "ExtendedAddslash" which is in the guide (https://www.jotform.com/help/126-How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP), the query starts with the INSERT here will trigger. You add slashes to prevent that query by converting it to a string.
Please check out this guide:
After understanding and doing all these, please turn back to us with the results. We will continue where we left.
All the best.
