    Sorry to say automatic connection to your databse using JotForm isn't supported. But if you know your programming, you can dump submitted information to your own database using PHP. Jotform allows sending of submitted information via HTTP POST. You can then manipulate the said data and save them to an SQL database that you have created in your own server.

    To enable sending via HTTP POST:

    1.  Go to Setup & Embed
    2.  Click Preferences button
    3.  Click Advanced Settings tab

    4.  Configure Send Post Data to "Yes"

    Hope this post helps in any way. Feel free to search or ask around the forum if you have more questions.
