Can you share some more information? What is the bot written in? Did you write it yourself or get it somewhere else? Do they provide installation instructions?

If the bot is as simple as a python script you should be able to use screen to run it in the background and continue running when you disconnect from your droplet's ssh service.

In this article, we will discuss how to install and use "screen", a tool that allows you to manage multiple shell sessions inside a single terminal. The screen program is very useful for multi-tasking in an ssh environment, due to its ability to resume terminal sessions and perform multiple-concurrent tasks.
