Node, NGINX and MySQL can all be installed on Ubuntu via apt-get from the official repositories so they can certainly all run on one droplet.

While it will likely be possible to install this on a 512MB droplet, MySQL using it’s default configuration will likely exhaust the available memory and cause the service to crash at some point after you launch it. I would recommend a larger droplet or at least a swap file before you try and set this up.

This guide will walk you through installing Node.js

NGINX and MySQL can be installed by running

apt-get update
apt-get install nginx mysql-server
