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

  1. Install the required Go SQL Server driver: go get
  2. Import the necessary packages in your Go code: import ( "database/sql" _ "" // 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 ( for more details and advanced usage.
