    To insert a data in your database, you will need to create a MySQL database. A guided instruction on how to connect jotform form to your MySQL db can be found on this link.

    To create the login page for the registration form you have created with jotform, you would have to create a custom login/mysql script and connect the login page to the MySQL database where you have link the Jotform data.

    For example, the database you have created is called member.sql , you will then need to connect member.sql to the login page too. To create the login page, you will have to use a php page instead of html. 

    The code below allows you to connect to your mySQL database.
