Installing Octopus Server requires access to an existing SQL Server instance. Refer to SQL Server Database Requirements for more information on the SQL Server editions supported by Octopus Deploy and installation instructions.
Octopus Deploy database backups are the responsibility of the database owner. Refer to Backup and restore for more information about backing up Octopus Deploy.
