Im curious can you change my current droplet configuration about maxclients “situation”. Thing is me and my community are very pleased with this droplet and servers in it aswell, but because we grove pretty fast we need more availible slots. Currenty there is 24 or 25 max slots per server, but we need at least 40 slots per server. So in hope we can do something and hope so not buying another droplet I thank you guys in advance.

Well as per our load testing, 2GB droplet must be efficient enough to handle 50 silumtaneous connections easily. We have streched the load to even 100 and it only spikes CPU but yet the there were no errors or time-outs. So it can be reliably said that 50-60 should not be a problem!

It might have something to do with your web-server configuration but certainly not your droplet size!
