I’ve two web apps hosted on my server and now I realize that I don’t need the server capacity I’ve at the moment. I want to reduce it without loosing any data.

Use fast resize for CPU+RAM or snapshot and create a new droplet from snapshot for disk as well.

You should give this tutorial a read about steps you need to take to downgrade the droplet..
