Hello,

Yes you should be able to run that on an Ubuntu 16 droplet.

To install MSSQL(mssql-server) follow these steps here:

  • Become root:
sudo su
  • Import the public repository GPG keys:
curl https://packages.microsoft.com/keys/microsoft.asc | apt-key add -
  • Add the Microsoft SQL Server Ubuntu repository:
sudo add-apt-repository "$(wget -qO- https://packages.microsoft.com/config/ubuntu/16.04/mssql-server-2017.list)"

Note: you could change the 16.04 part with the exact Ubuntu version that you are suing

  • Exit superuser mode.
exit
  • Install SQL Server:
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install -y mssql-server
  • Run the following commands to install SQL Server:
sudo /opt/mssql/bin/mssql-conf setup
  • After the package installation finishes, run mssql-conf setup and follow the prompts to set the SA password and choose your edition.
systemctl status mssql-server
