## Description

This module adds a webform content type to your Drupal site.

A webform can be a questionnaire, contact or request form. These can be used

by visitor to make contact or to enable a more complex survey than polls

provide. Submissions from a webform are saved in a database table and

can optionally be mailed to e-mail addresses upon submission.

Note that you must be running the latest 3.x version of Webform (for either

If you have contributed modules, custom modules, or theming on your Webforms,

   database changes. If you encounter an error and need to downgrade, you must

   restore the previous database. You can make a database backup with your
34
   hosting provider, using the Backup and Migrate module, or from the command
35
   line.

2. Copy the entire webform directory the Drupal modules directory, replacing the

   anywhere Drupal could possibily find it. Delete it from the server.
