    File upload - secure? Use my server?

    Asked by AutumnEyes on June 15, 2013 at 10:41 AM

    I would like to know that the files being uploaded are secure?

    I would also like to know if there is a way to upload the files to my server? I see you have Dropbox plugin, to have your files sent directly to dropbox, can I just as easy have them sent to my server, and still receive the notification email? I understand with a Free Acount, I would still be limited to 10 SSL submissions/month.

    Thank you.

    Do you want to know how to receive secure submissions? Please refer this guide: How can I receive SSL Submissions

    You can let your user know that your form is secure. Please refer this guide: Enabling Security Certificate Seal on Secure Forms

    You can only send the uploaded files to your FTP server. It's not possible to send the submission data to your server and you may like to integrate your form with dropbox or googlespreadsheet.

    If you have programming exposure, you can write custom code to send the submission data to your MySQL database. Please refer this guide: How to Insert Update Submissions to Your MySQL Database Using PHP

    Hope this helps.
