    It is possible to send the form submission to your own MySQL database using PHP. However, you will need to create a script that will serve as the landing page for the receiving post data. That script will insert the submitted post data to your MySQL database. Please refer to this guide: How-to-send-Submissions-to-Your-MySQL-Database-Using-PHP

    You might also want to check JotForm Webhooks. Here's a guide: How-to-Setup-a-Webhook-with-JotForm.

    We also have a list of apps where you can export the submissions and import:
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/mysql_export
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/sqlite_export
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/ms_sql_server_export
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/mariadb_export
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/postgresql_export
    https://apps.jotform.com/app/mongodb_export


    Hope that helps. Thank you.
