Usage/Installation Instructions

Install via Package Management.

Updating to 3.0?

We've released FormIt 3.0 in order to avoid issues with Mcrypt in the near future, since it will be deprecated in PHP 7.2. Mcrypt has therefore been replaced by OpenSSL encryption.

After updating to 3.0.0, you should refresh the page and notice a red bar on the top of your manager. From there, you can initiate the migration process, which will decrypt your saved forms using Mcrypt and immediately encrypt them using OpenSSL.
