It seems like your Nginx service has reached it’s worker’s limit. Imagine you have 300 slots in a room, when you fill them with 300 people, in order for the next person to enter the room, one must leave it. This seems to be happening with your website. This is not necessarily a problem with the droplet itself but the high traffic you are experiencing.
How to fix
To edit the limit, you’ll need to edit the Nginx config:
sudo nano /etc/nginx/nginx.conf
If you have one CPU Core, I’ll recommend adding the following settings to your Nginx config file :
If you have 2 CPU Cores, you should be okay to double the value.
As soon as you are ready, save the file and restart your Nginx
service nginx restart
