The free service for hosting forms is being phased out. I have been searching the forum for how do I move the form / data/ and the functionality from the free hosting over to doing it my self on my own site account. I am using the older form builder app. Is there complete document on how to do this step by step. It would be placed on a word press site where I have cpanel access.

Note you will have to hack the markup.

But what Form Builder are you using?

Thanks for all the information on how to place the code on the site. But after reading all the info it still does not have what I need. The version I am using is 2.5 5437. This information still does not include how to set up a database, for the form to use, how to get that information into the form processor, or how to get the form to actually function. I found out that it will not be going into a word press blog but a simple 4 page html site. I realize this is probably a lot of just basic info to most, but could be useful to others besides myself.

On second thought, I can see from all the writing on the wall that the web site industry has passed me buy. Like asking a 1980's car mechanic to work on a tesla model 3. Thanks for all the help and feed back, and to cofeecup for all the great programs they create. Time for me to retire.
