Hi @lavrinyukserik,

Check your Nginx error log in /var/log/nginx/error_log as well as your /var/log/syslog.

If it’s so frequently being dropped/killed, it’s possible you are running out of resources so your Droplet needs to kill a service so that it doesn’t crash. You’ll be able to see this from the two logs presented above.

If that’s the case, you’ll need to upgrade your Droplet to have more resources and I’ll recommend you add swap as well:

Hi @lavrinyukserik,

Is there anything relevant in /var/log/syslog?

Yesterday something similar happened to another user, check it in case it was the same.

Nginx server crashing occasionally

Let me know how it goes,
