Today we’re turning our attention to Python, and looking at how you can connect to a Microsoft SQL Server database running on Linux using Python. In this tutorial, we’ll look at establishing a connection and running a few sample queries.
Once you’ve installed Microsoft SQL Server on Linux, you’ll want to make sure it’s configured as you’d like it to be. There are a few ways to do this, and today we’ll look at two: environment variables and the mssql-conf binary.
Today we’re going to look at connecting to Microsoft SQL Server for Linux through Node.js similar to how we connected in PHP earlier. Just as before, our goal is to enable web application development by connecting to an existing MS SQL Server running on our local host. This time, we’ll do so using Node, and the popular Node library Tedious.
PHP and SQL Server work together wonderfully! Once you’ve gotten MS SQL Server installed on your Linux machine, it’s time to start running some real applications on it. Today we’ll look at querying SQL Server from PHP to enable your web applications.
Migrating a SQL server database from Windows to Linux is not that difficult! The recommended method is a three-step process of 1) backing up the database to a file on the Windows machine, 2) moving that file over to the Linux machine and 3) using the restore feature to import the data in Linux. Each of these steps is very straightforward. Read More
