Hi @xxhirottvxx,

It’s possible you are running out of memory and your Droplet is killing processes in order to not crash. In such cases, there are a few solutions that you can try.

The first one would be to add SWAP t your Droplet:

If that doesn’t work you’ll need to look into upgrading your Droplet.

Having said that, not all crashes are due to insufficient resources. I’ll recommend checking your Applications logs to see if there are any errors that occur prior to the website going down. If there are you should work through those to resolve the issue.
