Hello !
First, sorry for my english.

I have a PHP script to scrap data from a website. I would like to run this script and be untraceable... Is there a Digital Ocean solution that meets my needs?

Hey friend!

I'm afraid there is no way, at least that I'm aware of, to be untraceable. At least short of using and discarding proxy/VPN IPs, but then know that others are doing the same so even that isn't generally a high yield effort. In general, people don't like bots scraping their websites and with good reason, so whatever you do they will often (and rightfully) fight against it. At a certain point it becomes easier for them to fight it than for you to get around it.
