Hi @andrenoto,

I take it you mean a PHP SQLSRV extension, am I right?

I’ve found a couple of tutorials online outlining the following process:

To install the PHP SQLSRV extension, SSH in to your server as root and run the following commands to install prerequisites:

On Ubuntu 16.04

curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | sudo apt-key add -
sudo bash -c "curl -s https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/prod.list > /etc/apt/sources.list.d/mssql-release.list"
sudo apt-get update
sudo ACCEPT_EULA=Y apt-get -y install msodbcsql17 mssql-tools
sudo apt-get -y install unixodbc-dev

Next, run the following commands to install the extension:

sudo apt-get -y install gcc g++ make autoconf libc-dev pkg-config
sudo pecl7.X-sp install sqlsrv
sudo pecl7.X-sp install pdo_sqlsrv

Once installed, create configuration files for the extension and restart PHP by running the following commands as root:

sudo bash -c "echo extension=sqlsrv.so > /etc/php7.X-sp/conf.d/sqlsrv.ini"
sudo bash -c "echo extension=pdo_sqlsrv.so > /etc/php7.X-sp/conf.d/pdo_sqlsrv.ini"
sudo service php7.X-fpm-sp restart

Please note that this is based on one of the tutorials I found in Google, make sure to create a backup prior to starting the process.
