    How to connect my Jotform to my database

    Asked by Teendrivingnotes on January 24, 2014 at 09:40 AM

    I have a wix.com website and I am thinking about using your jotform service to run a registration form on my wix website. I also have a server where I want to store all the data collected from the form when someone registers. I would know how to do this if I created the website from the ground up but I used wix because I wanted something fast and easy. I was reading up on the JotForm API to see if that would solve my problem.

     

    My problem: Wix does not allow users to add .php code on their sites so I can't get the data from the form sent directly to my server. Right now it is set up where the data from the form gets sent to a google spreadsheet. My question is: do you have something I can add to my JotForm that can send the form data to my server? All the inside code I can edit is either on JotForm or my server. I can't edit any code on my wix site.

     

     

    Thanks
