I have a web system developed with PHP + MS Sql Server and I do maintenance on Windows environment. But I prefer working in Linux environment, Ubuntu to be more accurate.
But I cannot find a way to install this database driver. I googled but I cannot find any solution. Some tutorials shows how to install in 20.04, 18.04 versions, but even following the steps to the letter, I could no install.
Some tutorials that did not worked.
It seems, at least today, that
mssql-tools are not available in the Ubuntu 21.04 repos...
$ curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/21.04/prod.list deb [arch=amd64,armhf,arm64] https://packages.microsoft.com/ubuntu/21.04/prod hirsute main
$ curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/ubuntu/21.04/prod/dists/hirsute/Contents-amd64.gz | gzip -d | grep -E "msodbcsql|mssql" # No output.
As a result you'll get errors when you try to install them via
$ curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add - $ sudo bash -c "curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/21.04/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list" $ sudo apt-get update --yes # ... $ sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get --verbose-versions --yes install msodbcsql17 mssql-tools Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree... Done Reading state information... Done E: Unable to locate package msodbcsql17 E: Unable to locate package mssql-tools
Update I have written a bash script to automatically install the appropriate drivers for Ubuntu or Debian: https://github.com/sfinktah/bash/blob/master/add_sqlsrv_repo_combined.sh
I couldn't test support for other Linux vendors, but the capability is there if someone wants to send a PR.
Follow the instructions on
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/connect/php/installation-tutorial-linux-mac?view=sql-server-ver15 and https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sql/connect/odbc/linux-mac/installing-the-microsoft-odbc-driver-for-sql-server?view=sql-server-ver15#ubuntu17
Or as above:
sudo su curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | apt-key add - #Download appropriate package for the OS version #Choose only ONE of the following, corresponding to your OS version # Automatic version selection (does not work for 21.10, but 20.10 or 21.04 are fine) curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/$(lsb_release -r -s)/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list # Manual specification: Ubuntu 21.04 curl https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/21.04/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list sudo apt-get update sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get install -y msodbcsql17 # optional: for bcp and sqlcmd sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get install -y mssql-tools echo 'export PATH="$PATH:/opt/mssql-tools/bin"' >> ~/.bashrc source ~/.bashrc # optional: for unixODBC development headers sudo apt-get install -y unixodbc-dev
