    Uploaded Files Stored NOT on JotForm

    Asked by ellie123 on July 11, 2014 at 11:49 AM

    I have been looking in the Forum and not sure if I am just looking at old posts or if I am missing something.

    I have my form integrated with MySql db (not sure that makes a diff), but I want my uploads from my users stored in a specific place, say my Amazon S3 account or my own web server.

    Is this possible to do? If possible, I do NOT want them stored on Jot Form servers as they are huge files.

    Please advise...

    Thank you

    Hello ellie123,

    Yes it is possible to send your file uploads to your own server. Please take a look at the following guide which should help you send uploads to your FTP account:  http://www.jotform.com/help/177-How-to-Enable-FTP-on-Form-Submissions

    It is also possible to send your file uploads to your amazon S3 account. Please take a look at the following thread where my colleague have explained the steps in detail:  http://www.jotform.com/answers/321862-Upload-files-to-Amazon-S3

    Please be noted that any files you upload through your form will first be uploaded in JotForm server and then a copy of the file is sent to FTP or any other integration.

    You may like to check the following guide for understanding on upload size limits:  http://www.jotform.com/help/33-Changing-the-Upload-Size-Limit

    Hope this helps.

    Do get back to us if you have any questions.

    Thank you!
