I want to use Web Form Builder to allow a user to upload a file to my server (as it says I can do on page 34 of the Help Manual). However, I can find no place in any of the settings that allows me to specify where on my server the uploaded file is to be saved.

How can I designate a location on my server where I want this file to be saved?

The "where" is always hard-coded. Just FTP into your server and you will find a folder called "Storage". That is where the files will be kept.

Thanks for that info. It's good to know.

Is that somewhere in your help file, that in a long search I just couldn't find?

Also, is there any way you could allow us to set our own file destination for this? (I just wrote another WFB suggestion post about this.)

Thanks again.

If it is your server then you will have to create the folder first. With File Manager or a FTP program.

Normally when you upload your page with form it will go in the root folder public_html or hdocs. If you are using S_Drive the easiest option then it is just about done for you

There is a folder called "storage" in the [yourformname_exported] folder containing all your files. You will have [yourformname].php and [yourformname] folder. In that folder are 4 folders, common, fbapp, storage and theme. Your upload will be in the storage folder.
