    Changing the upload server

    Asked by tweezy on September 13, 2012 at 06:14 PM

    Hi, I'm wondering if it is possible to change the upload loction from your webserver, to mine. I except to have lots of traffic in the next year, so this will save me a lot of time. (I won't even really need notifications)

    If this is possible, then please help. If not, is there anyway to make it possible?

    Best regards

    Hello tweezy,


    Unfortunately is not possible to change the upload location from our servers to your. We understand your needs but the only possible thing is using the JotForm location, sorry.


    Thanks for your question and for choose JotForm

    In addition to what Daniel has stated to you. I would recommend you to go for our Jotform Application License that can be hosted into your own servers. Take a look at that link and if you need further assistance regarding to that product, please send an email to support@interlogy.com

    That is far to expensive for a university student. Looks like i'll be developing the whole thing on my own :(

    Since what you need is to just have the files to be copied on a different server, there are two options you can choose from

    1. Create your own Dropbox account and integrate your form to it.  This way, all copies of your submissions will also land to your Dropbox account, including the attachments.  And if you have installed the Dropbox app on your computer, you will be able to receive / download the files with attachments to your computer in real time

    2. Setting up an FTP connection from your form to your web host.  Just quite the same as Dropbox, form and file submissions will be forwarded directly to your FTP site everytime you receive a submission from your form

    You can learn more about JotForm with Dropbox integration on this page: http://www.jotform.com/dropbox/
