I can help you get further, but then you will have an issue with chromedriver hanging… hope this helps, maybe you can solve my issue? :)

  1. Create your droplet - I chose the $5 a month, Ubuntu 16.04.2 x64
  2. Login and update

apt-get update

  1. Apparently DO droplets lack entropy, so install this for lots of delicious entropy apt-get install haveged and then start it /etc/init.d/haveged start

  2. install unzip

apt-get install unzip

  1. Now follow this guide. https://gist.github.com/ziadoz/3e8ab7e944d02fe872c3454d17af31a5
