I just came across this question, what I could suggest is checking the logs for more information on why the application is crashing.

It is quite possible that it is due to resources like RAM for example. If this is the case you could try to add a swap file or add some extra memory.

One way to guard against out-of-memory errors in applications is to add some swap space to your server. In this guide, we will cover how to add a swap file to an Ubuntu 20.04 server.
