I've recently purchased the JotForm Application for installation on my own server and had it installed on my behalf. (Thank you)
I'm trying to import the forms I previously created in my free JotForm account into the new account on my server. I received my prior account's data in username.sql format as an email attachment but I get an error when trying to import it. I believe the error is because I have a pre-existing account in the JotForm installation on my server that has the same username. I was told having a user account with the same username would cause problems so I set this account status to "Deleted." This didn't seem to help - still error when trying to import.
Can you tell me how to totally delete the account for that matching username within my new JotForm installation so I can again try to import the exported account (username.sql file). I'm a MySQL/PHPMyAdmin newbie so please provide as much detail as possible.
Thanks in advance.

Ok. Figured out how to delete username account and was able to import username.sql file.
Now I can login to username account in my new server install of JotForm. It shows my two forms but when I try to edit them its blank. WHen I try to look at submissions, it tells me I need to login to see it (even though I'm already logged in). I actually don't need to see the submissions (they were all tests anyway) but I do need to see the forms to edit them.
Any advice would be welcome. THanks

I believe Jot App comes with clone feature, try cloning your form from here to your hosted JotForm App. I think this is a similar guide: http://www.jotform.com/help/42-How-to-clone-an-existing-form-from-a-URL
If this doesn't work for you, please contact our developers directly. See Mike_T's post above. Thanks!

Tried to clear cache and cookies. Same problem. I see the names of my forms listed at bottom left (under Welcome, Account settings, and Logout buttons) but I don't see them listed in the main part of the page up by the New Form, New Folder buttons.
I tried the Clone function first. It did not "see" forms from the JotForm site, only forms on my own install, so couldn't clone. I could import from URL but that led to a result with a lot of problems - loss of formatting, etc.
I will submit request to developers via email. Thx.
