    These terms are related to PHP language to connect with a MySQL database. Do you want to send your JotForm submissions to store in your MySQL database also? It is required to have some programming knowledge with PHP or any server side scripting language to proceed with the steps. 

    Please refer to the following guide on Posting-Submission-Data-to-Thank-You-Page which can also be useful in inserting into MySQL database as well.

    Please let us know what exactly you are trying to achieve so that we can guide you in the right direction.

    Also, we strongly recommend to create a free account with us to take advantage of receiving more submissions than the guest account.

    Thank you.
