    Is it possible to collect the data from a form submission using PHP on our server?

    Asked by LDMedia on April 20, 2011 at 03:54 AM

    We would like to use a jotform to collect data and send the user back to our web site. We need the data to be instantly accessible in our mySQL database.

    Is it possible for our PHP file to record the data sent from the form's POST command?

    Hi Adam,

    Yes this is possible. Our servers can send submissions as HTTP POST.

    To enable HTTP POST

    1.  Click Setup & Embed tab, click Preferences

    2.  In the Preferences window, go to Advanced Settings tab

    3.  Set "Send Post Data" to Yes.


    4.  Save your form


    Hope this helps. Let us know if there's anything else we can assist you with.
