1) In this Cognito forms API using php, we will simulate having a remote database in which we will be recording new entries. you most databases communicate data in a language/format known as “Sql”. Because Cognito Forms communicates data using JSON, we will need an intermediary program to handle this translation.

2) Create a small application which can capture data from a Cognito Forms(Cognitoforms) web hook and save that data to a database:

create file save_data.php ::

create file save_data.php on root of your web server

<?php  
	$json_data = file_get_contents("php://input");  
	  
	if (empty($json_data)) 
	{  
		echo "No data found";  
		die;  
	}  
	// contact_data as object
	$contact_data = json_decode($json_data);  
	if ($contact_data == null && json_last_error() !== JSON_ERROR_NONE) 
	{  
		echo "Error reading JSON data: " . json_last_error();  
	}  
  
	$conn = new conn("localhost", "myuser", "mypassword", "mydbname");  
	if ($conn->connect_errno) 
	{  
		echo "Failed to connect to MySQL: (" . $conn->connect_errno . ") " . $conn->connect_error;  
		die;  
	}  
	  
	$insert_query = "insert into contact_datas (firstname,lastname,address_line1,address_line2,address_city,address_state,address_postalcode,phone,email,company,comments) values ('".$contact_data->{'Name'}->{'First'}."','".$contact_data->{'Name'}->{'Last'}."','".$contact_data->{'Address'}->{'Line1'}."','".$contact_data->{'Address'}->{'Line2'}."','".$contact_data->{'Address'}->{'City'}."','".$contact_data->{'Address'}->{'State'}."','".$contact_data->{'Address'}->{'PostalCode'}."','".$contact_data->{'Phone'}."','".$contact_data->{'Email'}."','".$contact_data->{'Company'}."','".$contact_data->{'CommentsOrQuestions'}."')"; 
	
	if ($conn->query($insert_query) === TRUE) 
	{
		echo "Cognito forms API using php data successfully updated";
	} 
	else 
	{
		echo "Error: "<br>" . $conn->error;
	}
?>

3) Configure your web server so that this script can receive an HTTP POST and insert the data into your database. For example, create a new script on your web server called, save_data.php, so that when a POST is made to http://onlinecode.org/save_data.php the script is executed.

5) View your form and submit an entry.

6) Verify that the data was saved in the database.
