Hi @hfsventura,

I’ve never used OSRM but after reading about it, it seems it might be more suitable to be hosted on a separate droplet just to avoid issues with the other applications you have on your droplet.

Having said that, you can always try! What I mean here is, you can make a snapshot of your droplet, then try to install OSRM on the existing droplet you have. If it works without interfering with your other applications, great! If it does interfere, you can revert to the snapshot you made and create your OSRM on another newly created droplet.

The only specifications I can find about OSRM are 2GB of RAM and 4GB of SWAP. My practice is to always start with the smallest droplet, and gradually upgrade it whenever I need to do so.

Regards, KFSys
