Current Memory Limit : 128MB Memory, WP Limit 40MB

The Droplet hosts only one WordPress Website.

I want to set memory Limit as

define( 'WPMAXMEMORY_LIMIT’, '2048M’ );

Will there be any issue?

Hey friend,

I would go for smaller numbers. If you need a single PHP process to load that much memory, I propose that the effort is better spent optimizing the application to use less memory. That said, it never hurts to try anything and see what happens :)
