    Using my online jotforms with jotform installation on local server

    Asked by RTOApp on June 10, 2015 at 01:09 AM



    I need to use my jotforms on my local network (and without internet). I have set an xampp server and would like buy and install jotform. But before I buy I have a couple of queries:


    1. Will I be able to import my existing forms to my local installation?

    2. Do I get same feel and look (and functionalities) as my online form?


    Best Regards,

    If you wish to set your form to a local or your own server, I believe you'll need to purchase the licensed JotForm Basic App here: http://www.interlogy.com/products/jotform/. Please check that page if that's what you are looking for.

    The forms here in our online form builder (www.jotform.com), will be hosted in our servers, same with the widgets and other resources. Even if you use your form's full source code, there are a lot of external JS libraries that will be loaded via the internet. This means it cannot be hosted in a local server.

    I hope that helps.

    Well, the license version includes only the core of the form builder. I think you might be able to clone your online forms to that version but if the form includes a widget that won't be transferred to your local server since the license version doesn't include any of the integrations, widgets, etc.

    But, you can develop you own widgets and integrations in case you need to since that version includes the source code of the form builder.

    I hope this answers your question.
