To connect to MSSQL database in Linux using Go, you can follow these steps:

  1. Install the required Go SQL Server driver: go get github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb
  2. Import the necessary packages in your Go code: import ( "database/sql" _ "github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb" // import MSSQL driver )
  3. Establish a connection to the MSSQL database: func main() { // Define the connection string connString := "server=
  4. Use the established connection to perform database operations. For example, you can execute a query: // Execute a simple query rows, err := db.Query("SELECT * FROM TableName") if err != nil { log.Fatal("Failed to execute query:", err.Error()) } // Process the result set for rows.Next() { // ... } // Check for any errors during processing if err := rows.Err(); err != nil { log.Fatal(err) }


You can also check the official documentation of the Go SQL Server driver (https://github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb) for more details and advanced usage.

Connecting to an MSSQL database with Go in Linux requires installing packages for the MSSQL driver and importing necessary libraries in your Go code. Here are the steps to achieve this:

  1. Install the required Go SQL Server driver by running the below command:
1
go get github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb


  1. Import the appropriate packages in your Go code:
1
2
3
4
import (
	"database/sql"
	_ "github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb" // import MSSQL driver
)


  1. Establish a connection to the MSSQL database in your code:
 1
 2
 3
 4
 5

 7
 8
 9
10
11
12
13
14
15

func main() {
	// Define the connection string
	connString := "" // Add your connection string here

	// Establish a connection to the database
	db, err := sql.Open("sqlserver", connString)
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Error connecting to the database:", err.Error())
	}
	defer db.Close() // Make sure to close the connection when done

	// Check the connection
	err = db.Ping()
	if err != nil {
		log.Fatal("Error pinging the database:", err.Error())
	}

	// Continue with your database operations here
}


  1. Use the established connection to perform database operations, such as executing queries:
 1

11

// Execute a simple query
rows, err := db.Query("SELECT * FROM TableName")
if err != nil {
    log.Fatal("Failed to execute query:", err.Error())
}

defer rows.Close()

// Process the result set
for rows.Next() {
    // Process each row as needed
}

// Check for errors during processing
if err := rows.Err(); err != nil {
    log.Fatal(err)
}


By following these steps, you can connect to an MSSQL database in Linux using Go. Ensure to replace placeholders like connString with your actual database connection details. Visit the official documentation of the Go SQL Server driver (https://github.com/denisenkom/go-mssqldb) for detailed information and advanced usage.
